I've become suspicious that there's a fullscreen-mode optimization in some of the newer opengl drivers (most specifically AMDs latest drivers) that's causing a very rare (and very difficult to replicate) crash/freeze.
If I'm right in my hunch that this crash is due to an optimization tied specifically to fullscreen window styles, then there may be a way to work around the issue. You can test my candidate workaround by running the game with the '-fullscreen_border' command line option (i.e., an 'advanced launch option in Steam'). If the option is working correctly, you'll see a very thin border around the edge of the screen while running in fullscreen mode.
Could those of you experiencing occasional crashes, particularly if you're on a newer AMD driver version, try running with this option, and let me know if the crashes persist or appear to go away?
