Windows XP SP3

Auto Savegame to test http://rapidshare.com/files/425498226/H ... urno_10.gz

Hi, i have a little and strange problem whit the savegames. When i change the default name for "aux" or "AUX" the game freezes, but when i put other name like i don't now... "game 1" the game don't freeze and work correctly.
Maybe is fault of my computer's but, does somebody have the same problem?

Excuse me for my bad english >_<

At any rate, freezing is not a good way of handling such an error. I guess this is another wonderful feature of boost_iostreams, though I'll have to double-check that.
