Bug introduced in 10.0 and fixed in 10.3


So after 2 days of trying to figure out what's going on, I figure I should post here as I don't have enough knowledge about the Mathematica evaluation process "under the hood". I'm running Mathematica 10.1.0 for Linux x86 (64-bit) (March 24, 2015) on Xubuntu 14.04.4 LTS. The following code causes the "blue text of kernel death" (or whatever is the term):

Table[
 ParametricPlot3D[{1.16^(v + a) Cos[(v + a)] (1 + 
  Cos[u]), -1.16^(v + a) Sin[(v + a)] (1 + 
  Cos[u]), -2 1.16^(v + a) (1 + Sin[u])}, {u, 0, 2 Pi}, {v, -15, 
  6}, Mesh -> None, PlotRange -> All, ViewPoint -> {2, 2, 3}, 
  Boxed -> False, Axes -> False, PlotPoints -> 50, MaxRecursion -> 2, 
  ImageSize -> 500, Background -> None],
   {a, 0, 2 Pi, 0.02}]

It's basically a rotated conch, and I wanted to make a gif of it. Turns out, it keeps aborting the evaluation without ever reporting an error, the CPU and RAM usage are negligible, and there's no indication my laptop can't handle the evaluation in a reasonable amount of time. Resetting the preferences doesn't help, so I'm at a loss. Is this a version bug, or am I missing something?
