Do you still experience these crashes in 2.1.0-beta4?
It could very well be related to the graphics associated with the techs,
as you say, since they occur when you try to access the help system. All
default tilesets do have these tech icons enabled, so it wouldn't matter
which one you chose. You could, however, disable them by editing the
tileset's tilespec file (i.e. isophex.tilespec) and remove the line that
To be able to fix the crash, it would be ideal if you could provide a
backtrace for it!
