Pile Error

Playing 4.2.1 and I hit something I had never seen before in decades of playing various bands.

An actual crash.

I was so surprised I didn't even take a screenshot, but I found a pile_error file in my user folder and it contains this.

Pile integrity failure at obj-pile.c:214

Guilty object
Name: Infravision

Guilty pile

I was simply moving through a section of dungeon when it happened, on starting up again I was at the start of the level and moved through it, but did not reencounter this error.

Thanks, and sorry if this is the wrong forum for this.

This is the correct forum, thanks for the report.

I am aware of this issue, and it has been very persistent and hard to diagnose (typically the crash happens well after the root cause). There has been at least one attempted fix since 4.2.1 was released, which will appear (shortly, surely) in 4.2.2. Whether it's actually fixed then, we'll have to wait and see.
