Parallel Jobs Bug

Hi Bug Team,
I have been combatting a make bug for several months, and after many, many hours of web searching, I am finally breaking down to see if you might possibly have some idea about what I can do about this bug.  The issue is that I am building assets for a video game using the following command:
make -C Anims --no-print-directory -r -f Anims.mk all &&  make -C BGs --no-print-directory -r -f BGs.mk all
However, at seemingly random intervals throughout the build process (usually about 4-5 times per build), I get the following error:
make[1]: *** read jobs pipe: No such file or directory.  Stop.
make[1]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
make[1]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
make: *** [build] Error 2
Error executing c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe.
After I get this error, I can invoke the build again and it will start building files again where it had left off, indicating that there was no problem with the asset itself.  The most perplexing part of this "jobs pipe error" is that I am not using jobs.  Even if I explicitly pass make a -j1 flag, it still gives me this error maddeningly often, and cumulatively this ends up being an enormous time cost.  Do you have any idea why I would be getting this error when I am not using jobs, and more importantly, if there is anything that could be done to fix it?
