Summary0005064: Access fault when doing certain operations
DescriptionSometimes, when interacting with items either at the Swampling or in the snowy area to the east, the game exits with an access fault.
One time, I got a red quickly flashing guru and after LMB click I was back at the code wheel, however this time it was not patched so it denied my choices.
Steps To ReproduceFrom the attached save game, load save #2 and go to the swampling's house. Interact a bit and click on some things and the game will act weird for a second before it quits. By acting weird, it may trigger actions on its own or display texts that don't belong in that place.
Similar things also usually happens if I interact with the first statue in the snowy area to the east.
I have played through the earlier parts of the game without any crashes.

New slave 1.4b

Using the 1.4b slave I was not able to reproduce the issue. Although it was not 100% deterministic where it manifested itself, I was usually able to trigger it in a minute or two of clicking around in the area around the swampling/snowy mountains. This time I did all operations on all items a couple of times in the relevant area without problems.

If I see it again, I will update this ticket. Thanks for the help.
