Getting back to figuring out the source of the problem, you wrote:

Looking further, I discovered that sequential clips out of 1 camera have timecode that doesn't match the order of progression :

AA0134 - 20:22:40 - 20:51:03
AA0135 - 20:30:11 - 20:40:33

How did you sync timecode (i.e., were you using individual Tentacle Syncs, or genlock, or something else)? What timecode mode were you using (e.g., free run vs. record run)?

It does sound like one camera might not be maintaining proper sync, but it could also be a glitch in how you set up the timecode syncing. I'm far from an expert on timecode sync myself (I generally use a slate, but will be facing some situations this year where that's not practical so am investing in a set of Tentacle Syncs for my cameras and recorder).
