Windows 8
0006609: Dwarf Mode frequently crashes shortly after loading a saved game
Using either compressed or uncrompressed saves, the game usually crashes within about thirty seconds of loading a saved game. Occasionally the crash occurs before the game is fully loaded.
1)Save game
2)Load game
3)Wait for crash
(sometimes steps 1 through 3 must be repeated but i have yet to find a fortress that i cannot reproduce this on)
The worlds are all unusable after abandoning the fortresses in which this crash has occurred. When I try to start a new fort, the game crashes before the two week wait.
No tags attached.

As it turns out, fore quitting DF using the task manager during the pause after the initial pause or any seasonal pause fixes this bug for that specific fort. I have tried this successfully four times now without problems, while still crashing if I do not force quit after an auto save.

Yep, autosave.
