This is a TikZ/PGF bug, certainly. It also happens when using 'pdflatex -shell-escape'. The text of the error report comes from TikZ/PGF files. It can also be that the standalone class interferes here, so a test with a "normal" LaTeX class (minimal, article, report, …) can give a hint. With the minimal class no problem occurs, so it must be standalone that changes the process in an unexpected way.

When you don't want to give up standalone, you should report this to Martin Scharrer and Till Tantau. Could be they can find a work-around.
