 Thanks for your report. The vocab 0 file in this game seems to be damaged,
 or at least it does not appear to contain any actual vocabulary. The game
 does not appear to need this information to run, so I have added an early
 escape from parsing in commit 444b11b1bb7cc01cc26cdd61247eda536c2cb7d5
 which should allow the game to load and run again. It is very possible
 that this is not a complete/proper fix, but it makes things no worse off
 than they were before (when the vocab parser would have just continued to
 read into adjacent memory). This fix will be available in daily builds
 1.10.0git-3278 and higher.
