After Effects (aerendercore) from time to time crashing

We render our videos with aerender on console. From time to time After Effects crashed. In protocol file from AE v22.6 the error (0 :: 42) is written, the protocol file from v24.0 doesn't mentioned an error. The errors occured on 22.x, 23.x and also on 24.0. We tested different macOS versions. The errors occured on all tested versions (12.6.x and 13.5.x).  We have the error on both Intel and M1 processor. I also tested different RStemplate & OMtemplate settings. The error occrued on all combination I had tested.


We use aerender with following parameters:
aerender -project xy.aep -comp XY -RStemplate "Optimale Einstellungen" -OMtemplate "Hohe Qualität" -output out.mov

Protocol file v22.6 contains:
After Effects can’t continue: sorry, After Effects has crashed. For After Effects Help and Support, go to http://www.adobe.com/go/learn_ae_support. If you still can’t resolve the issue, please contact Adobe Technical Support (2). (0 :: 42)

Attached you find the 2 entries from aerendercore macOS diagnostic report.

I'm looking forward to your ideas so that we can fix this annoying error as quickly as possible.
