It doesn't sound like corruption, it sounds like the group's 
"selectGroupedControls" property has been turned off. This is a new-ish 
property that allows a group to behave as a single object. To edit the 
group elements, turn that property back on and its individual objects 
will become selectable again.

I'm not sure about the other behavior you describe, where visibility of 
two groups changes, but I'm pretty sure there must be a logical 
explanation. Corruption in stacks is not only very rare, but usually 
displays as crashes, inability to access a card, or something similar. 
I've never heard of corruption changing object behavior. Make sure your 
two groups have different names, or that you are referring to them by a 
unique reference like their number or ID.
