#1654 closed bug (fixed (in master))

Game crashes when "reset layout" is selected on XP and Vista

Description

Simple solution is to remove the "reset layout" option. Which is the path I'll take if no one can fix it for 3.4.0

Also reproduced on Win7 when selecting the option at splash screen.

Problem: the feature calls reset_visuals() which loads graf.prf. This cannot work because p_ptr is accessed during the call, and it's not properly initialized at that time. The solution is to disable "reset layout" until a character is selected.

This feature has been temporarily disabled in [a945067], so this could be punted if the bug is not fixed for release.
