Sounds to me like the window size is slightly too big at /MAX, so when the access denied error comes, the window gets redrawn at a smaller size, and on your system that trips something up.

ZTree shouldn't quit on an Access Denied.
Have you tried without /APIT?

Try with this /MAX:-1:-2, it's what I have been using for years, I do it in the config.
I found that without that setting, the ZTree window would be redrawn with scrollbars on unlocking, and a double Alt-F7 would be needed to get back. With the new console in Win10 with the wrapping text, I expect the redrawn window would have wrapped text, so appearing corrupted.

Other things to try
Call a shortcut (.lnk) file from Autohotkey, I use a shortcut to get the icon I like.
Call via a shell, i.e. cmd.exe /c ztw64.exe ...
Change the default console font
Switch to "Legacy Console mode"
