Base Invasion Crash

I also get this bug a lot of times when my X-COM bases get attacked, after like 6 or 7 turns, during the alien's turn the game just crashes and jumps back to my Desktop for no reason.
It's the only bug I haven't been able to solve after searching for days in x-com-related sites, bug faqs and forums (including this one).
The only patch that actually solves this problem is the one max developed, in this thread.
Unfortunatly his patch is full of other bugs, like the screen image being resized incorrectly, the mouse disapearing beyond the bottom and right edges of the screen, and proximity grenades working like smoke grenades, etc...
Is there any other way to get rid of the base invasion crash bug?
Thanks in advance for the info.

The anti-logarithm of the logarithm of X plus the logarithm of Y equals X times Y, or 10^(logX + logY) = XY

However, in my case, it involved sealed off rooms, and I imagine it was some due to some sort of path-finding error resulting in a memory leak. The Collectors Edition just panicks and does the safest thing it can perform - by exiting the program completely. The Dos version on the other hand may go on if a memory leak occurs and it's not able to detect it.
The main thing to do is to make sure you have a separate Geoscape save. It helps a lot when you cannot recover (without editing) from a mission.

One thing I did not mention in my post, there was an XCOM operative in that same room with the floater, albeit armed with just a heavy cannon and rounds and rounds of incendiary rounds. At the start of the turn there was the floater with his back on the cannon guy, and after several load-and-crash attempts, the cannon guy (a girl actually) managed to hit him thrice, the floater panicked and - hurray! - left the room. No more crashes after that
If not that girl though, I'd be toasted.
On a sidenote, the girl who made it, her name is Gudrun, a second Gudrun among my troops. Don't know whether it's supposed to be this way (it's a rather rare name in XCOM, I gather), but both Gudruns came with exceptionally high stats. Wish I had more Gudruns. Well OK, maybe I simply like the name
