The problem occurs with forked proofs in the context of "subgoal
premises" with maxidx >= 0. It is difficult to reproduce in batch
builds, because the default parallel_proofs = 1 does not fork
short-running proofs, but with parallel_proofs = 2 it is easily to be
seen in various examples (provided privately).

I have now addressed the problem here:

changeset:   68687:a9bef20b1e47
user:        wenzelm
date:        Fri Jul 27 17:32:16 2018 +0200
files:       src/Pure/goal.ML
proper adjust_maxidx: assms could have maxidx >= 0, e.g. from command
"subgoal premises";

That change will come back to the isabelle-dev repository in 1-2 weeks,
when I make a routine merge.
