In my thesis I am using minted for listings and lots of short inline references.
I'm running TeXLive on Windows with python 3.6. I am also using the cache, kpsewhich and outputdir options:
The more inline minted usages I have, the more often I get a compiler error
d:/Dropbox/Informatik/master-thesis/thesis/05-implementation-UAI-protocol.tex:2 76: I can't write on file `thesis.pyg'. <to be read again> \relax l.276 ...supposed to await a \protobufinline|QUIT| action
When I turn minteds caching off, it seems to work fine, but compiling takes ages. I need kpeswitch as the document has several dependencies to other directories and I am building with some TEXINPUTS.
Also note, that the error position
l.102 is just an example: it seemingly randomly occurs at different positions, mostly where mintedinline commands are used.
I suppose it makes little sense to give a minimal example, as the problem only occurs in the huge document and the frequency is increase with the usage of minted commands.
Sadly I have no good idea how to beginn debugging this issue and could not find anything related.
