Summary0010369: Game crash (likely) when Dwarves return from mission
DescriptionWhen I send dwarves on a mission, I think mostly when it involves "exploring" places and where places are rumored to have artifacts, the Dwarf Fortress window closes randomly after all of the dwarves have left the map, after some amount of time. Presumably, the game is crashing when the dwarves are returning from the mission.
Steps To Reproduce1. Go into the (as previously known) [C]ivilization menu.
2. Choose a location to send a squad of dwarves, specifically where artifacts are rumored to be. (May also matter if they are "exploring" versus "raiding")
3. Wait until all dwarves have left.
4. Sometimes, they will return, sometimes, it will crash.

May need to test further to see if crash occurs after they return but as they are bringing back rescued hostages/people seeking sanctuary.

5 dorfbucks says this is due to them trying to talk to an unknown entity.

I have this happen when all of the attacking squads leaders die or get captured.
Check if your squads have "VACANT" at the first position some time after sending them.

My fort was imported from 43.05.(oops double edit)
I think i have this issue, i was raiding a site with no population so i think its definitely to do with exploring as opposed to raiding.
Raiding towers worked at least.

Still happens in 44.03. Sent two squads on the same raid of a goblin outpost,and now the game crashes everytime they come back.
Also when i look into my squads none of the positions are VACANT, so I dont think it has to do anything with dworfs dying, or it simply doesnt show up if someone is dead before they return.

Here is a save a few moments before the game crashes. The Squad is in the process of entering the map. The dwarves that come back even carrying the loot as the report says. One thing special is that the artifact battle axe is strapped to the back of one of the dwarves. 44.03 [^]

Edit: Sorry, it doesn´t happen anymore with this savefile. But I tried it a few times from the seasonal save (9 ingame days) and it always crashed. But the save at the moment of the return seems to work

Edit2: So I had the same situation again. And saving while the squad enters the map fixed the problem again
