Summary0005890: The 'next vehicle id' is initialized with garbage on upgrade from 0.34.07
DescriptionThere is a global variable in the game that holds the next ID that would be used for a new vehicle object. When a save is upgraded from 0.34.07, this variable is initialized with random garbage, including sometimes big negative values (especially on linux).
Steps To ReproduceOpen an old save, look at variables in memory.
Additional InformationI didn't notice any actual functionality failures with negative ids, thus 'minor'. I suspect this is caused by an uninitialized local variable.
TagsNo tags attached.

I can confirm this on Windows. I loaded three different .07 saves. The first two (both fairly mature forts) got the same fairly large value (1489568466), and a third (a fort saved immediately after embark without any development) got a somewhat smaller value (64485885). I didn't test to see whether reloading the same save more than once yields the same value.
