Unable to open new tab after set-color --reset #1326

I've setup some shell scripts that hook in to SSH, for example; when I'm logging in as root to a particular set of servers, then I set the background of my kitty tab to red using: kitty @ set-colors background=#8B0000 and that's all working fine. However once I quit my SSH session a small little script get's executed which does the following;


kitty @ set-colors --reset
kitty @ set-tab-title

That should reset the title of the tab and reset the colors to their values defined in kitty.conf. However once I run that script, I am unable to open new tabs and I'm getting the following Traceback:
