0002176: Hard crash on Save after completing Trade Agreement
I'm getting a persistent CTD when saving after concluding the trade agreement with the dwarven diplomat in winter 1052 (after he lists the home civilization's trading terms).
I was getting a persistent CTD on save (*not* at the Cleaning Game Objects point, unfortunately) every time I saved, so I tested a bit and isolated it right at that point.

Trade talks before that are fine, and nothing else seems to be triggering it (I was saving every 20 seconds or so and then reloading). But when I attempt to save within a short period after that, I get a 100% CTD rate during save (and, watching it, I didn't see "Cleaning Game Objects" come up, but I suppose it's possible -- it does occur toward the end. But if I let it run for ten minutes and then save it, it CTDs at the Cleaning Game Objects point, so at least it's not a total block.
Savegame available if desired.

Yes, you should definitely upload the save for this. http://dffd.wimbli.com/ [^]

Damn. It may not be tied to the trade agreement. I tried doing a couple of things and saving slightly before it, and it still crashed before the Cleaning Game Objects phase (or at least without displaying that message). I'll try and isolate a bit better and up the savegame.

Doing any melting?

Nope. No objects have been so designated in this game. And I'm now having trouble reproducing it in my ongoing save-every-20-seconds copy of it -- perhaps all the saving/loading changed something.

So I've upped the savegame from which I had a 100% CTD-during-save (toward the end, but *before* Cleaning Game Objects shows) when I run it through until the Trade Agreement completes, then attempt to save it.

It's here: http://dffd.wimbli.com/file.php?id=2455 [^]

I did change a few things in my testing saves that eventually worked past that point -- I noticed that I had a few things in the stocks Forbidden, most noteworthily a Dwarf-owned Drink (probably was being carried by the hapless guy in the impact area when I marked that entire area for dumping) that had been marked as Dump and, if I recall correctly, found Forbidden in a Garbage pile. I unForbade it as a matter of course in my tests, but in the attached save it's still so marked. Some other things marked as Forbidden as well, in case it matters.

Reminder sent to: ChickenLips

Does your save still crash in 0.31.25?

Crashes in .24 too.

If anyone has a save that reproduces this problem in the latest version, please upload it to http://dffd.wimbli.com/ [^] and reopen this report (or PM a manager on the forums).
