Xlib: sequence lost

I have an instability issue with RStudio IDE on Linux Mint 19.1. I can start RStudio with out a problem. I can do something. However after some short time it will crush. I see the following error in terminal:

I ended up using RStudio Server which runs good. Do you have any solution on this? Thanks!
