0006864: Segfault after unpausing saved game in Dwarf Mode
This fortress was saved directly after embarking. A few seconds after unpausing the game, there is a
"Segmentation fault (core dumped)".
Continue dwarf mode game from
http://dffd.wimbli.com/file.php?id=8808 [^]

Then, unpause and wait a few seconds
Don't know if this might be important: I have also seen the error messages
Inconsistency detected by ld.so: dl-close.c: 759: _dl_close: Assertion `map->l_init_called' failed!


[xcb] Unknown sequence number while processing queue
[xcb] Most likely this is a multi-threaded client and XInitThreads has not been called
[xcb] Aborting, sorry about that.
Dwarf_Fortress: ../../src/xcb_io.c:274: poll_for_event: Assertion »!xcb_xlib_threads_sequence_lost« failed.
Aborted (core dumped)

errorlog.txt contains several lines that say "Empty biased index vector".
No tags attached.

I appear to have the same issue on the Windows version with "Empty biased index vector" in the error log. OS's event log has "Faulting application name: Dwarf Fortress.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x53bb189a
Faulting module name: Dwarf Fortress.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x53bb189a
Exception code: 0xc0000005"
The "Empty biased index vector" appears in the error log the moment the game crashes (not on load, and best I can tell not on unpause).

Loaded save and duplicated crash.

Exception code c0000005
