(devel new) Intermittent freezing

At around 5:25:00 in October, the game suddenly starts moving sluggishly, freezing intermittently for varying lengths of time, becoming unresponsive but not crashing fully.

Pak should be the same as the one I posted previously in the landscaping issue thread.

Are you sure that this is the correct saved game? It is currently in August.

Hmm, it seems right for me, I checked it just now, though I uploaded another file where it was accidentally named 610 but was actually earlier. Did you mistake the one?

My apologies - I think that I had confused the automatically loaded game for the save file. I have the correct one now, but I am afraid that, at 5:54 in October, I cannot reproduce this issue. Are you using the latest binaries?

The time seems to vary but it seems to happen eventually. Tried newer compile -- now happened at 06:03:00 or so.

Hmm - further investigation shows that the immediate cause of this appears to be many millions of passengers trying to get to an oil refinery at Sanguine at once, clogging up the 'bus stop at Sanguine Cornflower Street and causing great CPU load.

I am not yet sure what is causing this anomaly.

Edit: Passengers already appear to be at that 'bus stop in extreme numbers on the game loading.
