Merge PDF - Object reference not set to an instance of an object

Hello,

I am trying to figure out why my desktop flow is unable to merge a list of PDFs in a folder. It seems to only happen with the files the flow creates. I tried to make a standalone flow that just combined PDFs to test it out. It failed the first time, then immediately worked the second run. 

Trying a simple Retry with any amount of waiting will continue to fail in the flow.

Microsoft.Flow.RPA.Desktop.Modules.SDK.ActionException: Failed to merge PDF files:
*Insert 346 PDF Paths*
---> System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

The basic function of this is to clean 1 large document and batch processed with Irfranview. Then to recombine the split files to be worked manually.
