Good you notice this.  I just updated the package in the download area.
You can also use the files in the appended zipfile if you don't want to
download the whole thing again.

Right now this behaviour is intentional.  Sometimes there's a way to
finish a level with the remaining actors if one of them dies so the
level isn't automatically restarted.  But I will think about it.

It segfaults? Strange, it works for me.  A backtrace would really help:

First, enable core dumps and run enigma:

        $ ulimit -c unlimited
        $ ./enigma


        $ gdb ./enigma core

The "bt" command in gdb should now give you a backtrace.
