I wanted to accept and play a Duel with a Teammate. I had Puzzle 221 open and just when I clicked on play the whole Foldit hung up with the Message "Folit.exe has encountered an Error and needs to be ended."
Then I started Foldit again and tried to start the Duel even before loading a Puzzle. Now I got the Message "No .pdb or .opdb File found".

Is it just me or has anyone else seen this?

I have the same issue. I was play puzzle 249 and acceped a duel. Then Foldit crashed and after restart I got the Message "No .pdb or .opdb File found" if I tried to play the duel or puzzle 249.
After restarting Foldit agian I can continue puzzel 249, but if I try to play the duel Foldit crashes again.
I am run Foldit on Windows 7 64bit.
