Summary0000624: Exit specials crash
DescriptionIf the value of a player start thing's first argument doesn't match the one passed to one of the exit specials (Exit_Normal or Exit_Secret), the engine crashes when attempting to load the next map.
Steps To ReproduceUsing the attached file, start on MAP01 and press the switch in front of you to exit. Skip the tally screen and proceed to the next map.
Additional InformationTested/produced with: 3.0pre-31-g1852079 and 2.4.0 (64-bit)

About the test file: the switch has Exit_Normal special assigned to it with the first argument set to some arbitrary value. Of course, the next map doesn't have a player start whose first argument matches that arbitrary value, hence the crash.
TagsNo tags attached.

This is the same problem I occasionally discovered here.
It's caused by AActor::UnlinkFromWorld() called twice for APlayerPawn object.
To fix the crash it's enough to assign NULL in this line instead of that magic value.
But I would like to ask Graf to take a look at this.

The value is there to catch double unlinks, so the real fix should be to eliminate that duplicate.

I delayed the abort until the travelling list is completely processed, this seems to bring back the intended error message.

It doesn't build, did you forget something to commit?

Not forget, but the last change got lost somehow. Strange that is the second time in only a few days that this happened.
