Wow.. quite hard to handle. A solution might be to patch 
the hts-cache/new.ndx index file and invalid entries that 
were incorrectly downloaded (by replacing link path by 
XXXX, BUT ensure that you won't change the index size by 
inserting characters), but this is quite tricky to do..  

Another way (if the server overload if the reason of all 
problems) would be to reduce the server overload, setting 
maximum simultaneous connection to 2 or 3 in httrack.
