I've pushed a commit which I think will solve this. Can you test the latest version from Git, please?

If it doesn't work, could you let me know what your OS is, and when exactly the crash occurs?

From Debian bug #858796:

Frequently, I get a crash here, because gfx_messageBox is NULL:

        // Show the radio message if there is one
        if (gfx_textSprites[TS_RADIO].life > 0)
                screen_blit(gfx_messageBox, (screen->w - gfx_messageBox->w) / 2, 50);

I'm guessing the big-picture bug has something to do with switching between the various major screens (combat, menu, etc).
