Chunk options with valid R expressions lead to errors and crashing RStudio IDE

I'm able to reproduce the behavior with this Rmarkdown file

title: "Test of expression in chunk option"
author: "Drew Tyre"
date: "2019-04-11"
output: html_document

```{r setup, include=FALSE}
handout = FALSE
knitr::opts_chunk$set(echo = TRUE)

```{r, echo = !handout}
cat("this doesn't run with a valid r expression in chunk option\n")
cat("although it knits fine. \n")

This sounds similar to this topic, but the errors I get are different. I can knit this file successfully. But if I try to run the code chunks individually the one using an expression in the chunk option flashes green, but does not run the code inside the chunk. I get a "busy" indicator in the output panel of the chunk. In the console I get an error message: "Error in eval(ele) : object 'handout' not found". Restarting R and clearing output I start to get "File not found" errors when running chunks. Trying to run individual lines of code inside the chunk leads to similar issues. If I persist in trying, RStudio becomes unresponsive or gives an error about aborting.
