It looks like this is due to an explicit check for an empty game_title_background attribute in ttitle_screen::pre_show() of title_screen.cpp. The resulting exception catch in main() of wesnoth.cpp causes an immediate termination.

On the other hand, if the attribute is non-empty but an invalid file name, the game can continue as normal aside from the missing background image.

A game_config.cfg with no or empty "game_title_background" attribute causes the screen to exit the game.
