Document with Smart Object layers the share an object with other an object with other smart object layers. Documents are occasionally corrupted by  Replace Content.  Though it may look like the replace content worked correctly and all layer that share the object content are updated. The next replace content fails with a Program Error of if scripted the script receive and error user canceled. This further corrupt the document.  Additional Replace Content operations do not fail however, all smart object layers that share the replaced object contents are not updated.

Yeah, this doesn't seem like something that would work with embedded smart objects and scripts.
You'll need to be way more detailed with your description and probably also provide all the files and actions.

I can supply a script,  templates, replacement files but the problem is that it only happens occasionally and when it does happen it is usually into the  11th template somewhere in the 41 replace contents and save steps around 12 minutes into a 1.5 hr job. Package up its 1.5GB how do I post 1.5GB Zip file here.
