After I reset my preferences the problem is gone.
tried to migrate again to not do all of the settings again - but the problem came back.
so now manually adjusting my settings to what I had before and it appears to be the GPU Acceleration feature of "Hardware Accelerate Composition, Layer, and Footage Panels" (under display)
a formal bug report was issued.
That little tick box can make things much better, but there are occasionally time when it makes things worse. Seems like you found one of those times! Thanks for filing the bug report! That way it'll be fixed and you can go back to having that tick box make things better.
thank you Szalam
Thank you Yoofi!
That was driving me mad today. Got these Error Messages, when working with the zoom tool in the composition Window .
(my comp was 4032 x 96).

After Effects crashed completely.
Unchecking these "Hardware accelerate .." option saved the day.
OS X Yosemite 10.10.5

this problem appear to have been fixed in 13.8.1
