Four hours later:
Still I do not have a "minimal" example. But I think I have an idea what might be the problem:
The number of footnotes seems to have an impact.
I boiled it down to a version of my project where just a little additional note causes PANIC.
Adding another page of text or a sectioning heading or anything else is fine.

Does this help further finding the bug?
Does it make sense to have compare both tuc files (the last working and the first buggy)?
