0004754: Any time a specific dwarf dies, the game crashes
On several occassions the dwarf Udib Inkypants (he's the militia commander, so he's easy to spot in the units tab. He's in the squad The Copper Relics) has enganged various tougher enemies and sometimes died. On every occasion this has happened, the game has crashed either immediately or within a few seconds of him perishing. He's wielding an artifact bone spear that was the first artifact produced in the fortress and he's had it equipped since it was made.
Kill Udib, The Trussed Chaos of Machines in any way. It's been proven from him losing to nastier Forgotten Beasts (ones with Dust or Fire attacks) and happened when i killed him with a magma bath as a control test

I'm using the Ironhand 0.57 graphics pack

He's actually carrying the artifact bone spear and his own named iron spear in the same hand. Both are assigned to him in the equipment screen.

Most likely 0003762 - is TrueType on by default with Ironhand? Change this init setting to NO and it should stop the crash.

I'll give that a shot.

Did modifying the TrueType setting stop the crash for this report?
