So here is a quick patch that addresses the underlying
cause as I understand it at the moment.

Subject: [PATCH] (PR#40113) Fix assertion failure when picking nation.
The civclient global variable client.playing was
not being updated when the client received a packet
of type PACKET_CONN_INFO (see handle_conn_info in
client/packhand.c). This would result in client.playing
being NULL under certain circumstances thus causing
the assertion in question to fail.
