sorry for a late reply, I finally got gypsum out of my hand, so I am
able to do some work :)

I've tried you example and I really couldn't find any issue except
that it is really huge and almost impossible to inspect :( I commented
out everything except few first paragraphs and it compiled correctly,
so the issue isn't in used packages, but it must be somewhere in the
middle of the document.

I can't use even dviasm on the dvi file produced from the whole
document, so it is really corrupted. BTW, I am unable to compile your
file even with lualatex.

So, my conclusion is that this is mysterious issue which we can't fix
unless you find some smaller (really smaller!!!) example :)

Best regards,
