can you post the log file right after it crashes?

The data files are in different places depending on your OS:

on Windows:
if you installed after 8/23/2011, they will be in your installation directory (the default is C:\Program Files\Foldit\ or C:\Program Files (x86)\Foldit\)
if you installed prior to 8/23/2011:
on Windows XP at C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Foldit\
on Windows 7 and Vista at C:\ProgramData\Foldit\
on a Mac, Ctrl-click on the app and choose "Show Package Contents, then go to Contents/Resources
on Linux, it is the Foldit directory

Are you also on windows, vakobo?

Anyone having this problem with a non-Windows OS?

Are you still unable to load this puzzle right when you start the game?
(As opposed to opening it while you are in a different puzzle)

Yes, i'm on Windows 7 64-bit. Foldit crashes in both cases: i load 718 just on start and after other puzzles.
Also i found that foldit crashes when i exit program in login dialog

I have crashes with russian and sapnish translation but not with my french translation.
I see 2 explanations :
I put the file in /locale or it is more recent (I translate some of last tutorials).

The problem is somehow intersects with translations.
I have permanent crashes on puzzles listet above (722 too) with russian translation.
When i switch to english i finaly load puzzles 719 and 721.
723 and Killer toxin can be loaded with russian translation.

May be linked to the linguistic problem (see french version problem)?

The issue is in the .op file. There are a couple of format strings that do not contain all of the format characters.

e.g.
msgid "%d of %d bonus%s gained. "
msgstr "%d bonificaciones%s no conseguidas"
