Frequent Crashes when Viewing Demos

Not sure if its just on my end or what not, but when I go to watch a demo I can rarely even get through 5 minutes of it without the game crashing. It happens more often if you do anything with the menu. ie: Switch camera modes, players, fast forward, etc.

I'm thinking this is an stv only bug, but i'm not sure. Skipping ticks to many times on STV or POV will always crash my game, but I think that's a source think.

But I have experienced what trailer mentions. When changing the camera or using the stv hud. Although, it only happens to me once in a rare while.

Alright, they are all crashing in the same spot (related to checking if the scoreboard is visible whenever the mouse is clicked), and it's a crash that the early devs were aware of but couldn't seem to fix. Here's the comment right above the crash point:

Quote:
// all these NULL checks,
// because it's like ~CClientScoreBoardDialog can happen in the middle of this function happening,
// or something weird like that...IT'S FUCKING CRAZY, SERIOUSLY, THIS CRASH WON'T GO AWAY
// For real though, sometimes g_pScoreboard is NULL, but it still won't return right here...SEE IT'S FUCKING CRAZY, SERIOUSLY
I'll try to figure it out, but I can't promise anything. Not even sure how to test it, either.
