Frequent crashes in the main menu because of the title music

Not sure if anyone else is experiencing this, but my game is crashing a lot since 1.3.3. I think it's only happening in the lobby/main menu though, and only when I leave a server or the main menu loads for the first time after starting up the game, so maybe it's a problem with the background "demo" map loading?

I'm not alt-tabbing or anything, by the way.

Edit: This crash report just appeared, it seems to be related to the new mp3 title theme.

Yes, I had this issue ONCE,but I didn't think much of it because as soon as i restarted the game after ending all related processes, it didn't happen again. However, for some reason ever since this update came, I've repeatedly been disconnected from servers, again and again, with the message 'Loading canceled.' I rejoined back, and my ping was way under the limit(200/500). Then, I continued to load, but repeatedly at 70% to 85%, I kept stopping. And when a new game started, I remained at 0% and was cancelled. Not sure if this is related to this or needs a different post...
(Sorry if it needs a new post)

I've been getting a hell of a lot more crashes recently, and usually it's because the game can't find the effect "HIT", [Player] unequipped weapon of type "Melee" is normally included in the crash report along side it, I'll edit the post with a screenshot when it crashes next.

Fixed after Alpha 1.3.3.
Due to a (very old) bug the title music has always been played twice. With the new playback library sometimes disposing the previously stream while opening the new one causes the problem. We recently noticed this ourselves.
If you can't start SFD at all or enter the main menu without crashing try to delete the Title.mp3 file as a workaround.
