DescriptionWhen starting to play a game, it blocks on the screen to embark. When using a size larger than the standard 4x4, it will crash without any trace (looks like the game just closed itself). Its taking way longer than usual.
Steps To ReproduceInstall 0.31.18, overwrite it with 0.31.19, make a world, and try to do a quick embark with an area sized 5x5. Screen will crash (>5) or freeze (using standards).
Additional Information[CAVEINS:NO]

Rest is all default.

I've had this happen a few times if I aborted one worldgen and then allowed another one to complete. In one case, the embark actually finished and I found myself on a slade landscape hundreds of Z-levels tall (and some floating globs of water/magma deep below).

It also occurs when playing adventurer. I checked it completely, and it seemed that the memory spikes to 500 mb for the 4x4 map, and over 2 gig for the rest. It doesnt matter where it is located.

After having this problem occur at two different embark locations on the same world, I genned an adventurer. It looks like the magma sea genned on top of the surface. If someone else could verify/duplicate this with their own adventurer offering to the magma gods, that would eliminate my worldgen prefs as a possible cause.

Okay, it seems Urist McGates found a way to suprise me.

I deleted everything, made a complete fresh install, and Urist McDwarf is not a black screen anymore.

So it has to do something when overwriting the old version (.18) with the new version (.19).

Yeah, don't overwrite one version with another.
