Descriptive Problem Summary:
After a few times compiling GOA in DM, it appears to go insane and start throwing random errors.
I've tested my RAM a few times since this started happening and it doesn't seem to be unstable, and it only occurs when compiling from within DreamMaker, using dm.exe never has errors.
The error that shows up varies, but usually something like this:
(random included code file):(random line):error: /textlength/_dm_icon_getpixel/ //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// client//////////UnrealHospital//textlength//textlength/ //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// tv1//fridge_top//Window//ch//ch//ch//ch//sideltop/silent/ sps//sps//sps//sps//sps//sps//sps//sps//WillFit// Supplyscroll//Supplyscroll//Supplyscroll//Supplyscroll// Supplyscroll//Supplyscroll//Supplyscroll//
After shutting down DreamMaker when it is in this state, it crashes, here's a report from WinDbg:
First chance exceptions are reported before any exception handling.
This exception may be expected and handled.

Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:
1) Open up GOA's main file in DreamMaker
2) Work on it for a bit, while compiling
3) Somewhere around the 6th-10th time compiling watch as it starts failing for no reason.
Code Snippet (if applicable) to Reproduce Problem:
Does the problem occur:
Every time? Or how often? Every time I'm in DM long enough.
In other games?
In other user accounts?
On other computers?
When does the problem NOT occur?
Did the problem NOT occur in any earlier versions? If so, what was the last version that worked? (Visit http://www.byond.com/download/build to download old versions for testing.)
Periodically restart DreamMaker
