Opacity Mask point deletion leads to repeatable system crash

Afternoon folks,

I'm building a 4 minute opacity mask for a light sabre sequence (2 sabres, 2 colour mattes, 4 masks). As you know, its a laborious task, but its being made a royal pain in the arse becasue PR is crashing when I delete a mask point. I can add as many points as I want to a mask (Im using rectangular masks), but hitting CTRL and clicking the pen tool (-), leaves the system hanging. Other than a standard MS window message saying the process isnt responding, I get nothing from PR, not even a "Sorry mate, I screwed up again". I can repeatedly kill PR 7 out of 10 times I delete a mask point.

 

I've seen this issue mentioned in various forums going back to 2017 but without any solutions. Any ideas why this bug is still running rampant?

 

Im running:

PR V14.0. (Had a recent update.)
