I'm seemingly randomly getting crash errors on loading a saved game, or exiting transcendence. The latter doesnt matter too much, but the former is slightly annoying. However, I can load it up again, and it will work just fine. Seems to occur about 30% of the time. This is with the following mods installed:

TSB Alpha Test Extension & Libraries
DSF (alterecco)
G.O.D.Mod (alterecco)
Test Extension & its library (just a demo mod I made for people on irc yesterday on 'how to use libraries')
LRL15
Corporate command (and its library)

It didnt seem to do this with no mods installed.

I believe I've figured this out. CFG was also getting these crashes and I think I've been able to fix them in the next beta (real soon now...)

Thats good - but just a bit earlier..

I found what seems to be a related but much more critical error:

Sometimes, when transcendence exits, it closes the window but the game continues spinning the CPUs in the background. After enough failed closes, eventually all the CPUs on the machine will be spinning. In this case I had half of them spinning, but was going to render some promotional art for TSB quickly (can't though, turns out I'm missing some texture files since I reinstalled windows.. need to find them), and 3dsmax ended up trying to use all the cores, which caused the system run out of cores to execute on (hexcore system) and it nosedived. Eventually managed to get taskmanager open and kill the processes but that could qualify as an OS-killing bug.

This happens about 1/8th of the time.
