Sporadic "Error parsing Cues... Operation not permitted" errors when trying to generate a DASH manifest

Description

Summary of the bug:

I have already-generated .webm audio and video files (1 audio, 3 video resolutions for each video I want to stream). The video has been generated not by ffmpeg, but HandbrakeCLI 1.7.0, with V9 encoding. The audio (which has never caused an error) is generated by ffmpeg using libvorbis.

Most of the time ffmpeg creates a manifest without any problem. Sporadically, however, "Error parsing Cues" comes up, maybe 1 out of 5 times, and I can't create a manifest. Since this is happening during an automated process to process many videos for streaming, the audio and video sources are being created exactly the same way whether ffmpeg succeeds or fails in generating a manifest, making this all the more confusing.

The video files ffmpeg chokes on play perfectly well using VLC, and mediainfo doesn't show any problems with the files.

How to reproduce:

Here is the command I've been using:

ffmpeg -v 9 -loglevel 99 -f webm_dash_manifest -i '.\Sample Video.v480.webm' -f webm_dash_manifest -i '.\Sample Video.v720.webm' -f webm_dash_manifest -i '.\Sample Video.v1080.webm' -f webm_dash_manifest -i '.\Sample Video.audio.webm' -c copy -map 0 -map 1 -map 2 -map 3 -f webm_dash_manifest -adaptation_sets "id=0,streams=0,1,2 id=1,streams=3" '.\Sample Video.mpd'

Here is the output generated:

Interestingly different macOS experience, albeit with older versions of both ffmpeg (6.0) and HandbrakeCLI (1.6.1):

To speed things up, I've had my Mac working on encoding videos too, but a different batch of them. I hadn't seen this error crop up there. I let my Mac take a crack at a video my PC had been stumbling on, and it got through it just fine.

Merely using an older version of ffmpeg on my PC didn't help it build a manifest from the already-generated videos created with Handbrake CLI 1.7.0. In an hour or so I'll be able to see if videos newly-encoded using the older Handbrake help.
