That's the problem - I have no real workaround.  I wrapped it into
try-except but I have no real clue how to track the issue down.  I have
bisected the problem to reduce the amount of data with the "fun" Blend
(which has the only purpose of debugging).  You might like to try.

   ./tasks.py fun

and see if you have a clue how to fix the code.  I did not found a
solution up to now.

We seem to be in the same situation now.
Kind regards
