The Cranium Rat bug

I would like to address the 'cranium rat bug'. This bug typically occurs under the following conditions:
- Player has a clean install of Planescape: Torment with or without mods and/or patches
- * In my case, I have a full install as per instructions here and here
- Player has an up-to-date system (as of 2008) with an Nvidia 8 series graphics card
- Player has entered the weeping stone catacombs
- Player encounters a cranium rat
- - The rat is invisible. Only a red ring indicates its position. No apparent texture files appears.
> The crash occurs in a few different ways
> - Player attacks the cranium rat
> - Cranium rat casts a spell (usually ball lightning)
> - - Spell may or may not cast successfully
> - Game freezes for a moment before crash dialog is displayed.
> - The following error message sometimes occurs
An Assertion failed In F:\Torment\source\chitin\ChVidPal.cpp at line number 1124

This one is fairly specific. It's only 1 creature in 1 place that's causing the problem. Emptying the cache and temp folders didn't work unfortunatley. As regards an gameplay solution, I suppose I could try training as a thief dry.gif
