0010997: crash attempting to view units with "v" while paused
The game randomly crashed when I pressed "v" while paused.
Unsure of reproducibility.

The game was paused, and a short while into a new, unsaved map.

I pressed "v" on a newly discovered cavern layer, intending to view things on it, and the game crashed immediately, losing all progress.
No tags attached.

And yet again. There's nothing useful in the logs, other than "Segmentation fault: 11" Good thing Toady added a crash handler to dump the game's memory for debugging /s

You are reporting a bug in 6+ month-old v0.44.05 instead of the current version, v0.44.12. You wouldn't happen to be running an outdated version of DFHack too, would you?

Very few programs have built-in crash handlers, and there are reasons why adding one would be a lot of work (lack of debugging symbols, size of a full memory dump, etc.).

Anyway, I'm 99% certain this is due to https://github.com/DFHack/dfhack/issues/1057. [^] However, if this happens in a world where you have never used DFHack at all, and in DF 0.44.12 or newer, please feel free to reopen this issue.
