I'm not sure what I'm missing here, but for some reason exporting renders from AE is taking ridiculously long (2 hours for 4 sec clip), while sending the same render to Media Encoder takes only 3 minutes.

Both are using an SSD drive for disk cache, project source via thunderbolt drive.

2011 iMac, 32GB RAM
OS X 10.10.5
After Effects 13.7.0.124 (2015.2)

Any ideas?

What are your render settings and output module settings in AE? What are your render settings in AME? (Screenshots would be helpful.)
Also, knowing the contents of your comp would probably help.

Also, if I stop the AE render and then close AE, AE crashes (has done it 4 times in a row):

I don't see anything out of the ordinary.

Try rendering out of AE CC 2014 and see what it does. (Both with and without multiprocessing turned on.) If you don't have CC 2014, it's really easy to install it. This link explains: http://blogs.adobe.com/adobecare/2015/06/16/how-to-find-and-install-previou...

I usually render out of AE CC 2014 anyway as it has multiprocessing, but CC 2015 doesn't. (Explanation here: http://adobe.ly/1cXyVHV)

No matter how it works in CC 2014, you should really file a bug because that is odd behavior: http://www.adobe.com/products/wishform.html

Actually, file two bugs. One for the render speed difference and one for the error message.
