Quake II crash - can't complete section

Does anyone else get a (recoverable) DSI error (at address 0x7f73f848) when ending the "Big Gun" section?
Although I can re-start Quake, it won't let me get past this stage*, which I presume is related to the error.
If anyone has any advice on this, it would be appreciated.

* = even with "god" mode turned on - so the problem isn't just that I am rubbish at the game!

Just started playing Q2 on X1000 a bit.
Will let you know will I be able to end it. How "far" (how many levels) to crash :-)

Since the release of the hi-res version of Quake II, I've been playing it again from the start, but am still unable to complete the Big Gun level as before - basically, there is no green bar to push in the shuttle car, so you just sit there and get blown up. I do see a 'Loading' message but the game hangs at this point and the X1000 has to be (soft)rebooted.
Is anyone aware of a patch or workround for this, other than starting the game at the next level?
Despite this, it remains an awesome game!
