Default Pro Tools quits unexpectedly after quitting ?

I've been having a weird error with Pro Tools for a few months now and I thought perhaps it was because I was running 12.4 on Mac OS Sierra. However I've recently updated to High Sierra, 10.13.6, and Pro Tools 2018.12 yet this still happens.

Essentially I will close a session then do command + Q to quit Pro Tools. After the menu bar disappears like the program actually quit, I'll get a message saying Pro Tools has quit unexpectedly and ask if i want to report or reopen.

Any solution to this?

System is a MacBook Pro 15 - Mid 2015
2.8ghz Quad i7
16gb of RAM

Always happens on and off through the years. I don't think there is rhyme or reason why and when it happens.

I prefer to close the session first ctrl+shift+w then ctrl+q

That's what I've done, and it still does it. Really weird.

When that happens here is usually a faulty plugin, often when trying freebies

I had the same problem and couldn't figure it out, so I removed everything (PT and Plug-ins), started over and only installed the plug-ins the I actually use. This fixed my problem and PT now exits normally.

Same here! This brings the bonus of making PT start a lot faster.

I've had this problem with Kontakt on and off for years and years.
