"Thumbnail Generation Error" when using timestamps

I'm currently evaluating your software for use on several thousand file system, and I think it would be ideal if the timecode function worked however it has failed out each time. It seems to do with the fontcolor parameter and font choice perhaps? Is there a solution for this or a patch for the app? The error report is included below. Your work is very appreciated!
