Mplus crashes after DSEM with TINTERV... PreviousNext

We are testing a DSEM model which runs without the TINTERVAL option included, but crashes after all iterations are done when the TINTERVAL option is included. We tried it on multiple computers. There is an output file created, but it does not contain estimates.
We have 228 participants who filled in questionnaires 5 times a day, with random time intervals, for 11 days. So max 55 measures over the measurement period.
As time variable we use the minutes since the start of the measurement period (time_inc). We use a time interval of 2 hours (120).
In the example below we used just 1000 iterations, but the same problem occurs when set to 50000 (which runs without TINTERVAL).

Are you familiar with this issue and do you know of a solution?

Thank you!

Code:

Usevariables = SE Reject Accept BSE;
Missing are ALL (-999);
Within = ;
Between = BSE;
lagged = SE Reject Accept (1);
USEOBSERVATIONS are Minutes LE 20;
Cluster = ID;
tinterval = time_inc(120);

DEFINE:
CENTER BSE (GRANDMEAN);

Analysis:
Type = twolevel random;
Estimator = Bayes;
biterations= 1000;
PROCESSORS=2;

Model:
%within%
sSE | SE on SE&1;
SE_REJ | SE on Reject&1;
REJ_SE | Reject on SE&1;
REJ | Reject on Reject&1;

SE_ACC| SE on Accept&1;
ACC_SE | Accept on SE&1;
ACC | Accept on Accept&1;

We need to see the full output (or input) and preferably the data - send to Support along with your license number.
