0005420: Unexplained crash to desktop
I was cheking the progress of my fishing platform over the evil ocean I embarked on, when Dwarf Fortress suddenly stopped working and crashed to desktop(I got the "Dwarf fortress has stopped working" Windows error message and everything). I haven't been able to reproduce yet(fortunately, I have an earlier save for this fort, will see if it happens again)

Happened again, but this time I got a nemesis unit failed to load fatal error. I'm uploading the save so you guys can screw around with it and see whats up.(Note that the save is basically from the beginning, so you'll have to get a fort running until the error(s) pop up)

The nemesis unit load fail crash is a very old crash, and already reported at 0001371. It means you have a corrupted save. This thread http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=34936.0 [^] still applies and might be able to help you recover it.
