I found a repeatable error when testing at the extreme limits of the Content Aware Crop feature.  I created a 2 pixel wide by one pixel tall image.  Filled in both pixels with a color and attempted to crop out with content aware enabled.

This consistently gave me an error of Error 1244 - Illegal Argument, this error does not crash the program entirely and does not block the feature from being used in my testing.

What version of Photoshop and what OS/Version? I wasn't able to reproduce this off-hand.

This is Photoshop CC 2019 20.0.1 and Windows 10 64 bit Version 1809.  I forgot to put in my steps that you need to crop to a larger size with Content Aware on.  I also cropped out on all four sides if that helps.
