Description

Using the command in the repro steps on Linux will cause the Editor to crash and CrashReporter to pop up with a callstack.

This behaves differently when tried on Windows with -vulkan. The project started to build but the process ended. Not entirely sure if it crashed or not since CrashReporter did not appear.

This was reported and tested on 4.22 (CL-5660361). This was reproduced on 4.21.2 (CL-4753647) and Main 4.23 (CL-5915573)

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Navigate to your Engine installation folder to get to UE4Editor in the command line
  2. Use the following parameters and hit Enter: ./UE4Editor Project Path -run=resavepackages -buildlighting -MapsOnly -ProjectOnly -AllowCommandletRendering -Quality=High

Results: CrashReporter will come up with the referenced callstack

Expected: The project launches

Callstack
Unhandled Exception: SIGSEGV: invalid attempt to read memory at address 0x0000000000000140
