AW: [bf1942] DC 0.4 Instability?

Actually, DC_Basrahs_Edge, El_Alamein and Omaha_Beach don't have carriers on
it. On Omaha, there's a destroyer, but the two others do not have any
vessels on it...

Basrah and El_alamein were played again with full server, nothing happened.
All those core files had something about "could not address memory at...."
or something in it... (now I get "no stack"; is this normal?)

Andreas: I know I'm running DC (and this is not supported by DICE... :) but
could you give me a short brief what this error message could mean (I'm a
freshman on linux; not that the error messages on windows would be less
cryptic... :)?

Thanks a lot for any inputs!

I've noticed the same on a Windows Coop server I run at a dorm. It seems
that just about any map with ships, besides guadalcanal (no carrier)
crashed before anyone can start rendering. Then the server restarts to
battleaxe (boo). We've tried a few times without the coop, and get the
same results - carrier maps seem to crash the server, and the client too.

The server we have is running Windows XP with DC .4j on BF1942 1.45.

Other maps, such as battleaxe, bocage, kursk, market_garden, and gazala
all work without a hitch.
