0006771: Asking the dwarves in a fortress about their trade partners causes the game to crash
I was able to do this twice, once with the militia commander and once with a count. While carrying out conversation with them about the Fortress' trade partners the game immediately crashed!
Ask a dwarf in a random generated fortress who their trade partners are!

Possibly related to/duplicate of 0006524. If you ask someone who doesn't know information the game will crash. Comments in report 0006570 allude to this bug as well.

By the way, you can type e.g. "#6524" to get 0006524.

crash when asking for trade partners here, too.
at the moment I can reproduce this always with one adventurer:
- go to hamlet, ask about trade partners.
- go to the town you get indicated.
- ask about trade partners.
- crash.

Current theory: This civ has only one town/marketplace.
At least I retried with another civ with 3 towns -> no crash.
You get an answer indicating the other 2 towns.

Here's a 40.02 save: http://dffd.wimbli.com/file.php?id=8875 [^]

Asking the child about trade partners always crashes the game for me.

Had it happen before in this world, but did not save before the crash. Tried to reproduce, but couldn't at first (I spawned in another site and I got an answer without problems).

This civ has many sites, so it's probably not a lack of marketplaces.

This should be fixed up for next time.
