EXPECTED: Everything visible on entering level.
INSTEAD: game world goes black except HUD as in:
Issue happens on starting to play a char about every second or third time. Happens after loading zones much less frequently - about 1 in 10 times. Bug is existing in 0.7.4B as well.
FIX: Changing graphics master setting. Lighting up a waypoint or other sources of light that are lit on getting close work as well but are not as reliable.
edit: Black display on Linux seems related, but is closed.
