I think you encounter the same bug as mentionned on this topic :

Fixing permanently dead redstone torches

Which answer was :

Known bugs on Minecraft Wiki #Redstone Torches

This is a know bug, all you can do is restarting your game. It happens sometimes on random blocks, and it will never work again on that block until you restart. It happens both on single and multiplayer, we hope it will be fixed on 1.8
