0002733: Hangup and black screen
After DF is running for a while (>1h), it hangs itself, showing a black screen and still using full CPU. This happens for no apparent reason. This is not always happening, and after varying periods of time.
No tags attached.

It's not a crash if it's a hang. Does this happen on seasonal transitions? Are you in a freezing biome?

We need more information.

Also, how long are you waiting before you give up?

I have my settings set to autosave, and I have been experiencing particularly long save times. When it is saving, sometimes the screen will black out, especially if I am going between the DF window and another window. Try giving it several minutes and see if it continues.

It happened again, this time while opening the squad menu during combat, I remember that I was doing the same before the last crash. So it seems I've hit 0000706 which will be resolved in .11. So you can close this one.

Alright, thanks for the followup. Feel free to reopen this report after the 31.11 release if that version doesn't fix the problem.
