Arch-viles and corrupted save game files in classic Doom II?

Back in my Windows 98 days, there were two instances in which my vanilla Doom II save game file was corrupted. In both of these cases, there was an Arch-vile nearby. I couldn't seem to find any relevant information on this forum or either Doom wikis, which suggests this is a very rare bug. I don't remember which version of the game I was running, but I'm pretty sure it was 1.9.

Has anyone ever experienced similar issues? Just curious.

If an arch-vile is performing its attack when the game is saved, the target of its attack is not stored in the save file. This bug is non-fatal in all versions of vanilla Doom, though it causes a nasty crash in Doom95 (therefore rendering the save file useless). There are no other bugs relating to arch-viles and saved games. Are you sure you were playing vanilla? If so, I don't think the arch-vile was to blame.
