A few thoughts...

To me, 80,000 does not seem large, but 24 does  ;-)

How about copying the table structure only, and then "adding" all the 
current data into the new structure, etc...

Or... How about splitting the current table into, say, three sub-tables, 
with about 27,000 records each (well under that darn 32,768 limit!), and 
then running Repair on each sub-table. If each sub-table is error-free, 
that might suggest that the data in the individual records is not the 
problem, but perhaps the "volume" of records, and you might have hit a 
variation of that darn 32,768 issue among all those secondary indices.

Also, if you have ChimneySweep handy, maybe it's worth a shot? (However, 
I did try/stress it (a lot!), some years ago, with no success!).
