OK, I've seen this a few times.

I accidently hit the "/", so it wants to search.

I hit "." when the cursor is in the blackness outside the corridors/rooms.

I get a pop-up window saying, in part:

Microsoft Visual C++ runtime Library

X Debug Assertion Failed!

Program <long path from my home directory>\isctype.c Line: 56

Which version of Windows? I believe this is fixed in development, and at least I can't get it to happen there. ——paxed (talk) 07:04, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
This strikes a bell. I had found a problem last year and posted a pull request that fixed some similar assertions. PatR submitted the changes on 7/9/2016 "add '(uchar)' casts to ctype calls. --barthouse



Windows 10.
