I can't reproduce this with any of my savegames or the "section 3" debugger command.
I just had a quick look at the attached savegame, and it's in a 'broken' state. How did this happen? No idea, you probably saved on an unfortunate moment when a running script was processing compact and/or script-data or the file got corrupted by other means (bad media?).
This problem pops up every so often and to my knowledge would happen with the original interpreter as well.
"Fixing" this in the engine will be very hard... the only way I can think of right now is to somehow check certain parts of the game's state before allowing to save... but implementing this is very tricky (maybe not even possible) and not even guaranteed to work in all cases.
Seeing as we only get about 2 of these reports a year and working around this is a massive amount of work, I'm closing this as "Won't fix" for now.
As for your particular problem:
You can try 'fixing' your savegame by typing "scriptvar ref_henri_speech 16386" in the debugger (Ctrl-d) after loading it. However since the rest of the savegame may contain weird/undefined data, I'd recommend loading an earlier savegame and continuing from that if you can instead.
Save game at the ground level, near the Doorman.
