The only bug left that I am aware of is some kind of problem with 
 dictionaries. Our player db was being corrupted in such a way that
 if you tried to access an element it would throw ~keynf, but the key would
 show up in dict_keys(), and you could re-construct the dict with a for loop!

{new_dict = #[]; for elem in (dict) new_dict = dict_add(new_dict, elem[1], elem[2]);}

The dict code is over my head, and I can't reproduce the bug at will, otherwise
 I'd try to fix it myself.
