Here is a link to what I have been told is the same fortress as the original save before embark.
It also crashes for me when I pick fortress mode from the menu using the Linux version.
It turns out this was due to Windows using the case insensitive NTFS file system.
There were some raw files with upper case characters in their filenames in the save.
When opened from a case insensitive file system like NTFS this does not cause a problem.
When opened from a case sensitive file system like EXT4 Dwarf Fortress tries to open the raw files with all lower case filenames and fails since the filename is wrong.
This was discovered by NCommander, you can find his post here.
