Do you mean Emacs itself is hitting this error and crashing, or
/bin/bash running inside *ansi-term* does?  Can you run under a debugger
and get a backtrace?

Does it currently work fine on 25.3 (i.e., is it possible an OS update
caused this to stop working on earlier Emacs versions as well)?  If you
load term.el from 25.3 into 26.1 does it work then?
