I am playing Freecol and I can consistently reproduce a bug that causes the game to freeze.

Download the attached savegame.

Once loaded, select the Wagon Train in Vlissingen and press 'O' to make it execute its goto order. The city screen pops up, and now try to transfer the tobacco and the silver from the wagon train to the merchantman by draggin directly to the merchantman from the cargohold of the wagon train. This works, but now the game hangs, and I am unable to press the "Close" button.

    The bugs also happens when just transferring the goods to the warehouse.

    Actually, it seems to happen even when you just select the wagon train, presses 'O', close the city screen, and then press 'W' for wait, then it also hangs.

    Another thing, if I select the wagon train, cancels its order (L), then the route it was supposed to take is still shown using the yellow wheels. They should be cleared once you clear the orders.

    However, clearing the orders and then choosing "goto city" again works, then it does not hang the game.

    Just had the game hang on me again, this time right after using 'O' again. It must be related to this? I used it on a veteran soldier this time.

    The tar of your save file seems to be corrupted. Please try again.

    I just unpacked it and zipped it again.

    As far as I can see, this problem is not in any way related to the actions you describe. It seems that a petty criminal trying to enter an Indian Settlement is caught in an infinite loop. You can check this by not unloading the wagon train. The game will still hang.

    Hmm, that is strange. I was able to continue the game afterwards, as long as I just made the wagon train move myself.

    Anyways, if you were able to locate the bug, then great ;)
