Today is the first time I have tried to run 1450 since taking the latest devprev (20171120-1b650829c2-win_x86-devprev). It crashed when I tried to change tracks, then crashed every time I tried to open it. I rebooted the PC; same problem.
I renamed the puzzle directory and all puzzle files, and it opened again, but after creating one new track the same thing happened - crashed when changing tracks, now crashes every time I try to open the puzzle.

At least two players in vet chat are running 1450 in the new client with no problem. The other two puzzles run OK on my machine.

Here is the (long, boring) list of what I tried. BTW the log files all say "puzzle loaded," but neither the Loading screen nor the puzzle ever showed - it crashed while looking at the puzzle selection screen or at the track I was trying to change away from.

Opened aflatoxin puzzle successfully in latest devprev. Changed from default to track s1. Changed from track s1 to track s2. Tried to change from track s2 back to s1, foldit crashed.

Started new foldit, tried to open aflatoxin, foldit crashed.
Started new foldit, tried to open aflatoxin, foldit crashed.
Started new foldit, tried to open aflatoxin, foldit crashed. (no logs saved)

Rebooted machine.

Started foldit as first application running, tried to open aflatoxin, foldit crashed. (log copy 9)
Started foldit, tried to open aflatoxin, foldit crashed. (log copy 10)
Started foldit, tried to open aflatoxin, foldit crashed. (log copy 11)
Started foldit, opened 1452, tried to change to aflatoxin, foldit crashed (log copy 12)
Started foldit, opened 1453, tried to change to aflatoxin, foldit crashed (log copy 13)

In foldit directory, renamed all files starting with 0002004467.
In puzzles directory, renamed directory 0002004467.
Started aflatoxin puzzle. As expected, tracks were gone. Created track 1450_test1. So far so good.
Tried to change back to default track, foldit crashed. (log copy 14)
Started foldit, tried to open aflatoxin, foldit crashed. (log copy 15)

There doesn't seem to be a file upload button on the feedback screen any more, so I can't upload the log files :P

Apparently file attachments can be made in comments but not in the original post.

Thanks for pointing this out. I think I've tracked down the cause, and we'll hopefully have an updated devprev version out soon.
