0005114: Segfault/crash when trying to save game in both Fortress and Adventure modes
After having played several fortresses and adventurers it now segfaults when I try to save game (tried both modes). If "save upon embark" is on, the game crashes upon embark, etc.

Looks like save game corruption since a fresh world does save correctly.
I'll upload the savefile in a few hours.
No tags attached.

Downloaded and checked it and it crashes with my DF too.

I have also experienced this problem. I uploaded a region that I absolutely cannot save on without crashing- simply start a new fortress in this region, embark immediately on the first area selected, and try to save. The game will crash.

with my game, saving works fine for dwarf fortress mode, it only crashes for me when i save in adventure mode. Im also using a mac, any ideas on how to fix this?

I've managed to reproduce this as well. After several adventurers and one fort in the same world, attempting to save in adventure mode reliably crashes every time.

Yep, this one is evil. Releasing within 24 hours or so because of it.
