Please try with this patch. It will do a controlled Lua error so we see
a stack trace and find out which script is responsible. For example,

NSE: 'path-mtu' (thread: 0x99555c0) against threw an error!
./scripts/path-mtu.nse:320: NEGATIVE TIMEOUT: -150
stack traceback:
        [C]: in function 'set_timeout'
        ./scripts/path-mtu.nse:320: in function <./scripts/path-mtu.nse:295>
        (tail call): ?

The fact that a script can halt Nmap in this way is another bug, but
let's first fix whatever script is setting a negative timeout.

Unfortunately, tried with exactly same command line and with exactly
same target IPs two times, but cannot reproduce any more :(
