      Description

      This one is difficult to reproduce and difficult to pinpoint what exactly causes the error, but I have a few observations.

      When using commands that analyze the tags of an Arrow entity e.g.

      /scoreboard players tag @e[type=Arrow] add Meh {inGround:1b}

      , if there are too many Arrows, Minecraft returns the following: "An unknown error occurred while attempting to perform this command". Such an observation can also be made with commands such as

      /entitydata @e[type=Arrow] {...}

      In addition to that, even if you only select a single Arrow entity, the error still occurs. e.g.

       /entitydata @e[type=Arrow,c=1] {...}

      This only occurs if you have very many Arrow entities present (not extremely sure what the cut-off point is, but I reckon about 200).

      Has also been tested with cows and zombies, does not happen. Not extremely sure about other entities. (Happens with Spectral Arrows)

      STEPS TO REPRODUCE:

      • Create a world (or just open one up)
      • Shoot an arrow in the floor and run this command:
        /entitydata @e[type=Arrow] {}

        , and you should see: "The data tag did not change: {...}"

      • Place down a repeating command block and input the following command: /summon Arrow ~ ~20 ~. Power the command block using any form of redstone for about 10 seconds and allow the arrows to fall.
      • Run this command:
         /entitydata @e[type=Arrow] {}

        , and you will see: "An unknown error occurred while attempting to perform this command"

      • This command will also trigger the error:
         /entitydata @e[type=Arrow,c=1] {}.

      You also can't target them with /entitydata (/entitydata@e[type=Arrow] {} gives an error), but you can target them in /kill
