Reading your report I get the impression you are running the native
Win32 version. I suggest you try the SDL port instead. It is much more
stable. The only thing is that you have to use the command line to
save and load games.
BTW, your games are always autosaved every few turns. So even if the
game crashes, you should be able to resume playing without losing much
