Apparent hang during overworld travel.

I've installed the 0.4.14b hotfix. The game has hung three times in a row. I had to fight a random encounter just outside of Caer Cyflen. Travelling on, each time I reach the region between Caer Lem and the Mage's Tower I run into a "random" encounter against some variety of undead who surprise the party. The game hangs trying to load the encounter. I've left it running for up to 10 minutes and it never seems to load. The game is sitting at 5% CPU usage and 20% GPU usage. If I tab out to the shell and right-click on the taskbar icon I can close out the app normally without having the kill it.

Well,huh. As soon as I bothered to post this, I tried again and got slightly farther before the random encounter. I saw a different load screen this time and the map loaded almost immediately. It may be a specific random encounter map that's the issue, but I have no idea which one.

And... hung again before arriving. Seems to be the map that has a crumbling walll covered in scaffolding that's an issue. I've had encounters on that map since the Winter update, but not since the recent hotfixes. Seems to be an issue now.

I am having an issue with this too.  It hangs while traveling to Caer Lem when the bandit encounter occurs.  I have been unable to get past this.  I am playing version 0.4.14b and loading from an auto saved file created from a new game started after I got the update..

I installed the beta fix for load issues and am still seeing this hang. Steam is re-downloading two files that failed validation. Hopefully that helps.
