Using a batch file won't help, the exact same issue occurs. So, whether you are batch rendering from within maya, or from the command line/batch file, the render process crashes.

no word from maya on whether or not they will release a service pack to fix this. it's pretty crippling for me though. I'm going to have to update my machine to Mavericks at some point, and it's a really hard sell to convince my boss to buy Maya 2014 to fix one compatibility issue.

Any ideas when Autodesk will be releasing a build to fix the Mavericks compatibility?

Best,
Colby

I tweeted at their support team and they said they don't have a date, but they are definitely going to patch it.

what you could do in the meantime is download the trial of maya 2014 and use it just for batch rendering.

Hey Evantron,
I tried earlier but there seems to be licensing issues with Autodesk 2014 software and Mavericks.

Guess we'll just have to wait.

what type of licensing issues?

turns out I'm actually going to upgrade to 2014 anyway since my team needs more seats and you can't get 2013 anymore.

I've been able to use the 2014 trial with no issues on mavericks so far.

SP3 should have addressed this. Did you grab the SP3 installer and try running that after removing the original 2014 install?

The announcement of SP3 release and download location were one of the worst ever by Autodesk. It was nowhere to be found in my Subscription center. In fact I had to ask AD support where to get it from (and had to wait 2 days for them to get back to me with the answer).
Furthermore, the only reason I knew about it was because of this forum.

Why is Autodesk so unwilling to set up a system that notifies it's paying customers when updates to software have become available? I find this such bad practice.

yeah I didn't hear about sp3 until yesterday by random chance looking up the release notes for maya 2014
 
  12 December 2013
Well I just created an entry over on the 'Ideas for Maya' forums about this. Go forth and add a vote folks.
