I stumbled upon a possible workaround for the meantime. If you can babysit the return of your rocket and pause the game before the tank begins refueling (or catch it in time while still under the desired kg setting), changing the tank's silder/text value to any other value and back again should allow you to reuse the tank without rebuilding it. Once you quit and reload you have to do it again, like the rebuild route.
This is happening to me too. All settings the same as submitter. It's happened twice now with a new game, once around cycle 30-ish and now again at 65. Both times the duplicant printed and died instantly. I am renaming them (to append cycle # to their name), if that info helps.
