I have confirmed with two other mainline campaigns that this happens reproducibly, but only for Scenarios 2 and higher. The reason why it does not happen for S1 is that it is related to carryover code, which is not entered for S1 of a campaign.

The error can be replicated by going into any second (or higher) scenario of a campaign, setting the gold to a negative value in debug mode, saving and reloading.

When reloading, it is the condition at line 121 here that sets the gold to zero. gold_ is 0 and cfg_gold is whatever negative value is in the save, thus 0 gets stored into the side config.

Now, I do not know this part of the code well enough to say whether a simple "if this isn't the first turn" conditional is the right thing to do here or whether the root problem is upstream, but maybe somebody else does.

Loading a turnsave sets negative gold to 0 while it works fine with positive gold. (HttT, Crossroads - but unlikely to be specific to the scenario)
