"invalid menu operation" is displayed, the timeline disappears when reloading

I use CC 15.1.10 ~ at Win 10 1803.

When editing in the main composition, a warning " Invalid Menu operation " is displayed when layers are selected at an unexpected timing.

Reloading the project file with the warning displayed, the existing timeline of the main composition will not be displayed at all , so the work data can not be saved now.( Preview can be done normally and a new layer can be created, but the layer number will be from 1, Shy is not used)

  Although basic troubleshooting of AE such as version change was executed, it did not solve it at all and it is a state that can not be conjectured due to the fact that occurrence was quite sudden.

  Does anyone know who solved the same kind of trouble or any cause?  Thank you for your help.

Sorry to say but if you do a bit of searching, you'll soon find this bug has been around for many, many years. I'm using CS6 on Win7 so I'll let you do the math.  Needless to say, don't expect Adobe to come clamoring.  No corporate profit in it.

Since this bug has been around so long, and i ONLY see it occur in AE,  I suspect it has something to do with a quirk in Adobe's scripting or UI and with the OS's basic pointer system that somehow gets confused.  I haven't seen a particular pattern anyway that triggers this.  I usually just save if possible, close project, exit AE & restartit as just closing & reopening the project usually doesn't clear the problem.
