0005343: 3/4 of the map is a big hole going straight to hell.
I generated a map, searching some site without success and got bored if the map. I generated a second one and used the search function to find possible site. Fund one, embarked. When I got on the map, there were flying lava larva and the game paused saying : Horrifying screams come from the darkness below! I unpaused to see what would happen and then the game started to lag intensely. I was able to pause back in order to view the map more clearly (the screen was zoomed on the flying larva). To my surprise, the embark site (and the whole map) was missing its upper part and its lower right part. I changed z-level in order to get to the bottom of the pit and saw the glowing pits, lava pools, underground caves only in the remaining part. The pit just kept going down to the end of the map. They were certain pseudo mountains in the pit thought.
I have no idea how to reproduce this.
All my dwarfs fell to their death or suffocated from the gas... It was awesome BTW. Very funny. But now I have to find another spot for my embark again. Cheers.

This sounds like a case of 0005077, which is fixed in the upcoming release.
