0004602: Embark starts with 0 fps, caverns caving in, and lava pouring everywhere
Four out of my last five embarks have started the game with 0 fps. Usually I also get constant reports of cave-ins ocurring in the caverns (which I can't see). One time there was a very large shaft (circular, probably 30 tiles wide or so) from the surface that went straight down to hell (something like 120 floors of nothingness) so I discovered hell and demons spawned the instant I embarked. The 0 fps seems to be from the entire magma sea draining into hell and the constant cave-ins don't help.
Embark anywhere - biome, etc doesn't seem to matter.
I guess I can't upload files here, but I have a save from the 120-floor shaft going straight to hell game if anyone's interested.
No tags attached.

It would be more useful to upload the world generation parameters to pastebin and post a link in 0000051, which covers this sort of problem. (0000495 is closer, but it's a specific child of 0000051)
