First of all, thank you for the work.
Anyway, I have to report the same issue, I get a crash when I try to continue/load a pre-patch savegame. The program crashes and I get as additional info of the crash: 0a9e372d3b4ad19135b953a78882e789
I validated Stream's file as suggested and restart it as well. I also turned off any mod I had installed, but nothing changed.
Saving and reloading a new gameplay works normally.
