Crash bug

I found a crash in v4 rev 1d1b14a. I have attached the save file one step before the crash. To duplicate, open the save file and move left next to the gray mushroom. This is running in windows XP, using Nomad's tiles, it looks like sometimes it resets the graphics as well.

PS Go me, I'm the first person besides Magnate to start a thread in the v4 forum!

1. Yep, I can reproduce this, even if I wander away for a while and then return and step next to the mushroom.

2. If you learn both of the available spells, it stops happening. If you learn just one spell, it still crashes. (I tried this on a hunch since my warriors haven't had any crash problems in this version.)

So the crash appears to be triggered by getting confused while you have unlearned spells available.

Interesting. Can you reproduce this in the V dev versions? There was a recent change to the code about the Study message - it now only refers to books you're currently carrying, rather than all books. I wonder if it's related to this. (No idea why it would be dependent on confusion though.)

Doesn't seem to have anything to do with affixes, anyway ;-)

Haven't played Angband in a while, but if I'm not mistaken, you can't read books while confused... I wonder if this bug could also be reproduced by dropping all your spellbooks? In both cases you'd have no readable books

I also confirmed that the crash happens when attacked by a brown mold, so it definitely appears related to confusion.

Any news on whether it also happens with the latest 3.4-dev version? That will make it *much* easier to trace ...

EDIT: I've opened ticket #1570 for this, which links to this thread.

latest 3.4-dev crashed when I walked into an undetected confusion trap. Don't have a save file handy.

Ooh. Did you by any chance have any unlearned spells in your current books? (i.e. Did you have a "Study (x)" message?)

Then I suspect it is the same bug, and I suspect it's from commit eb98584293, though I'm not certain of that because there's nothing obviously wrong with the commit itself. I think it's not an interaction of the actual game effects, but of the game wanting to print "Confused" and "Study (x)" on the status line at the same time.
