It worked fine in r197 but with r198 it crashes everytime.

Sorry, we can't fix bugs in the audio encoders since we didn't develop them. The AAC encoder actually uses the encoder built in to Windows, so it's a Windows feature that is broken :P Either use an external tool to encode the AAC, or make sure it's a 16-bit PCM WAV at a common sample rate. Some people find very short sounds can't be encoded, and padding it with silence makes it work too.
