What does this do, exactly?

What happens if you invoke Emacs in the same way the 3rd, 4th,
etc. time?  Does it crash on every invocation except the first, or on
every second invocation, or something else?

It is possible that some of your customizations write something to the
disk, and that triggers the problem the next time.

If you want to help us find the culprit, run Emacs under GDB (install
Emacs with symbols if needed), and file a bug report with the C
backtrace, using "M-x report-emacs-bug RET".  Continuing the
discussion here is unlikely to find the reason for the crashes.

Another alternative is to upgrade to Emacs 26, perhaps this problem
was already solved during development after Emacs 25.
