0007271: New fort crashes after retiring previous fort
I have been able to reproduce this twice.
I retire an old fort then start a new one. Immediately on pressing the spacebar to unpause on embark, the new fort crashes.

I reproduced this twice in a single world, I will update if it occurs again in a newly generated world.
Retire fort
select 'play now' from dropdown menu,
select embark point and embark new fort
hit spacebar to unpause
No tags attached.

What version of the game are you using? This sounds a lot like 0006681, which only affected version 0.40.01. If that doesn't explain it, please upload the save to http://dffd.wimbli.com/ [^] and post the link here.
