Thanks for the clear and concise test case! I was able to confirm the problem and track it down and fix it.

The problem is triggered by an error in the game code that causes an unusual condition in the interpreter. The interpreter shouldn't crash, though, even when encountering a code error in a game, so this is definitely a bug in the interpreter.

I've made a change in the interpreter to fix the crash. This lets the game continue running past your test case. I'm not absolutely certain that this game as currently written will complete correctly with the interpreter fix in place, since there is that questionable code in the game itself, but I think the game code sort of accidentally works as long as the interpreter doesn't crash.

If you want to try out a patched version with the fix, I've uploaded a copy here:

http://www.tads.org/patch/htmltads-bug235.zip [^]

Just unzip that and replace the htmltads.exe in your current install directory with the one from the zip file.
