Made sure event handlers are still alive in linger mode. (Fix for bug #15226.)
Actually, it is not quite clear why they were dead in the first place, so this fix may just be papering over a bug somewhere else.

This one seems to do it every time. In case it matters, I compiled 1.7.12 for myself.

Actually, I hadn't realized that.

I can't reproduce it. Could you post a savegame of a scenario for which it happens just before you end it?

I've experienced similar behavior since 1.7.2, in every BfW version I had. The crash happens only for some scenarios, when pressing ok after entering the name. It seems to have to do with the length of the scenario name. (For shorter names it is less likely to happen...)

In case you don't know, the automatically saved start-of-scenario saves also don't contain the scenario's wml.

If you attempt to save a game in linger mode, BfW crashes as soon as you enter the name, and the game is not saved. (This matters to a campaign designer.) It worked fine in 1.7.8, but I don't know when it stopped working.
