#1131 closed defect

Random lock ups

I'm getting it with the Win32 ScummVM, version 0.5.1 as well as 0.5.0. I know, I know, try the latesst CVS build, but I have no idea how that works. I'm using the version of the game I downloaded off your site.

The game just freezes from time to time (except for the music), but usually I can still press ctrl + alt + del and go to the task manager to kill the process. Sometimes I can't even do that and have to reset it, which is quite a feat, seeing as how this is the only program that's ever made my system lock up completely. It seem to occur much more quickly when I use LINC or some other terminal. I'd say within a minute or two.

trying latest CVS build won't help in this case anyways... when exactly do you get these crashes? Are they related to doing an action? So... if you just stare at the screen and do nothing at all, do you still get them?

In the 0.5.1 Readme it says: ScummVM 0.5.0 contained a bug in the savegame system. If you experience problems using an old savegame, it may be corrupt, and you will need to start a new game using this version.

Have you done that?

I've even had it happen within seconds of starting the game, so it couldn't have been the saves, or even a specific action.
