I get single game crashes on very infrequent occasions that aren't due to something I'm doing with a mod.

I am always off-line when playing so was wondering if there is any value in posting the debug logs for these crashes in the Ministry crash section? When something happens to cause a crash but it can't be repeated, I'm not sure if the info has any value.

Also, I had an overlay-caused crash recently in one of my mods during gameplay. It never happened again, but, once again, is it worth posting this info? Given that I may be causing these crashes with my code, any debug info may be useless.

Anyone know more?

Even if your code is the cause of a crash, that's still an issue with the game's engine. It should catch and handle exceptions it encounters, and the developer has modified it many times in response to such issues, in order to improve its robustness. Definitely report the crashes with as much relevant information as you have.
