The nightlies are savefile incompatible with 4.0.5, so trying to load a 4.0.5 savefile will give the behaviour you're describing.

If that doesn't help, another possibility is the lore file, which will be in your ~/.angband/Angband directory; there has been a change in that that may also cause problems. Try renaming that to something else and see if you have any more luck.

A good general method is to run Angband in the Gnu debugger, gdb; this will possibly print a message on exiting, or halt with gdb message which will allow you to get more info about what has gone wrong.

Let me know if you still can't get anything to work.
