Uhhh... thats supposed to be approximately 100, not whatever Note: 0000100 is.

Also, this issue has not occurred when using acquirement with other item types.

After doing &aa and then pressing ` an inordinate amount of times (way more than 100; I was holding it down for some time) the game started reporting "Infinite lua loop detected, aborting."

Perhaps this had something to do with standing on top of a ridiculous stack of weapons.

However I wasn't able to cause a crash, and since this is a situation that can't possibly happen in a normal game maybe there's nothing we need to do.

I started reproducing it in wizard mode *because* it happened once during normal gameplay. No massive stack of weapons or anything. It's entirely possible that crashes in wizard mode were affected by the weapon stack and unrelated to the normal gameplay one, but its pretty much impossible to check in normal gameplay. :(

Maybe the Lua error I'm seeing is a separate thing to do with the huge stack.

However I can't reproduce a crash after hundreds of times acquiring, at least not in local console on Windows 8.

Can you attach a copy of your save where it happens, in case this is e.g. related to a particular race/class combo?

I theorise this was fixed by the changes I made in 0.13-a0-744-gd329f00, but without knowing more about the circumstances in which this crash occurred, I don't know for sure.

Might this one be related? Looks like the "don't give holy to undead or DS" loop is going infinite. Perhaps a blessed weapon was chosen as the weapon type somehow? [^]

The "holy to undead or DS" bit is definitely fixed now, which is why I'm inquiring further here.

This is probably solved, closing. Reopen with new crash log and backtrace if it happens with 0.13 or up.
