Can you point me to a specific build (no external DLLs) this happens with? I tried to start up several builds I had on hand, and couldn't reproduce any crash.
I found the problem and it stems largely from a typo, but it evaded testing because the issue doesn't tend to show up in a test project in DS unless you enable hosting. It requires an empty client slot (which usually is created by turning on hosting and having the hub try to reach you) and then changing an area's appearance. These are both things an SS13 server would do often but the former won't happen if you run a test in DS without enabling hosting.
