Internal Error: Sub-system: QIS File ....

I was attempting to synthesize a mixed VHDL Verilog design. This design compiles in older quartus versions (12 and 15.1), modelsim, and all xilinx tools, but it will not compile in Quartus Prime Pro 17.1. Thank you in advance for any help.  

 

I have attached the tarball with the source code and the QPF. This can be replicated by opening the QPF in Pro 17.1 and attempting to synthesize. 

 

I see no warnings, but synthesis errors with the following report:

Any luck, I've also encountered the exact same error but on Ubuntu 16.04.

I submitted a service request, and they said they are searching their internal database.
