0004571: Crash when viewing inventories of blood-splattered creatures
I've been getting a recurring crash in .25 when I try to look at the inventories of creatures during combat. I can't say for sure, but the crash usually occurs when the creature in question has blood-splatter on them, and this has happened for both my dwarves and other creatures. At first I thought this was isolated to forgotten beasts, but I have also just had it happen with a Giant Toad. I went to check the inventories of my victorious, blood-splattered dwarf and CRASH.

It is possible this is only an issue with the new cave creatures, as I've only had this happen with FBs and Giant Toads so far. Will try to get a save once I can reproduce this realiably, but it seems fairly random (but annoyingly frequent).
- Have a creature get blood splattered on them

- Check their inventory

Do you have TrueType enabled? Sounds like you could be experiencing 0003762.

Yes, turning off truetype fixes this issue, at the cost of making text look like ass. I have a save where I can replicate this issue every time now, which I will upload shortly.
