If this hasn't been resolved yet, try this instead, as I had the same problem:
Spam the S key (not hold it down) as soon as the client starts loading, and continue to spam. If you do this correctly, instead of the Auto Graphics page which crashes your client, you should now have a Log-in page.
After a few tries, this worked for me and I had no more issues.
[The issue usually comes from playing on a Mac, and you'll have to continue to spam the S key each time you log in, as the client doesn't seem to support Macs fully.]
Hope this helps.
