I submitted PR #524 which does the bare minimum for resolving the file_exists-check-omitted bug. People are welcome to add the extra error messages/handling included in the patch.

Thanks, Patryk.

I already contacted one of the developers and the patch is now assigned to him.

I just submitted patch fixing this issue, see: https://gna.org/patch/index.php?3972

Now dev with repo access needs to take a look at it. Andrius, do you know whom should we poke to review that patch? ;)

If the first argument for --screenshot command line option is non-existing file or file which is actually not a map, Wesnoth goes into infinitive loop. It should stop and provide a useful error message instead.

To reproduce:
"./wesnoth --screenshot non_existing_map.map out.bmp"
