Interestingly, I do NOT get any errors with graphics on, it just doesn't work.

Works perfectly for me when using 16x16 fonts.

for the sake of testing I tried turning graphics on first using a 16x16 custom font of my own, then using curses_square_16x16, then using curses_640x300. I couldn't get it to crash.

Maybe this is related? [^]

When exactly does the CTD happen?

Does this happen as soon as you start up DF or only after you choose create a new world or object testing arena? If it only happens after you choose either of those 2 in the menu could be related to 0000217. On my computer choosing either of those 2 options with graphics on results in 1.5GB memory usage and if the people reporting the crash all have less than that, that could be causing this crash.

The CTD happens as soon as you select the worldgen command from the main menu, before it even shows the warning screen, if [GRAPHICS:YES] is set in init.txt and you have a non-fixed graphics set in raw\graphics.

You won't have the CTD if the graphics set that you're using has applied the fix that was discovered for the problem, which is to move the DEFAULT entries so that they aren't the first line in each block in the graphics set's .txt files (and to create dummy lines in one-line blocks, such as CHILD lines, to go before the DEFAULT lines in those blocks).

If this crash did not occur immediately, but only after entering world gen or the arena, it should be fixed for next time.
