Failed to open quick hint data
Game crashes at seemingly random intervals

While just exploring or waiting, I sometimes get this error message and the game shuts down. I cannot replicate this, but it happens every now and then. It is not really game-breaking, but slightly more than a mild annoyance. Getting to the same spot after starting again does not create this error.

I am playing the Steam version 2.3.5, plain ASCII without sounds or music.

The quick hints were saved after every step of the PC. We suspect that this can lead to a situation were the file is still opened from the last save and can't be opened again that quickly (or the file may be scanned by a virus scanner, etc.). Therefore the quick hint data is now stored only after the game is saved/quit.
