In MySQL 8.0 documents (https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/8.0/en/replication-options-binary-log.html#sysvar_max_bin...), the option max_binlog_cache_size is described as 

"The maximum recommended value is 4GB; this is due to the fact that MySQL currently cannot work with binary log positions greater than 4GB."

However, the default value 18446744073709551615, which is not actually supported.

How to repeat:
No need
