Is it repeatable?  If not, then it is probably memory.  A certain
binary (zip in your case) may have already been corrupted on disk, so
that may not be a determining factor.  Try other binaries.  Enable
core dumps and trace it back to see what happened.

$ ulimit -c unlimited
$ zip ...
$ gdb -c *.core

In the case you noted above, you tried to reference some memory at
address 3, which is not going not work :-)  But your stack pointer
looks good.  I would see if it is repeatable...
