In the debug log I have not seen any invalid things from nginx side.
Then I have looked OpenSSL sources and now I suspect the bug in OpenSSL.
The attached patch may fix OpenSSL.
Could you build patched OpenSSL version and link it statically with nginx:
tar zxf openssl-0.9.8g.tar.gz
patch -d openssl-0.9.8g < bad_write_retry.txt
tar zxf nginx-0.5.33.tar.gz
./configure --with-openssl=../openssl-0.9.8g ...
