Has anyone experienced this "lock-up" bug?

Occasionally, say, once out of every ten battle victories, the game will simply freeze on a black screen when the battle ends, but before experience, gold, and loot is awarded. I cannot trigger this bug at will, but it tends to happen after say one out of every eight battles, necessitating a restart of the game. I've already experienced <a href="http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/980489-puzzle-quest-2/55370786">these</a> <a href="http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/980489-puzzle-quest-2/55361678">two</a> bugs, but given the generally epic and intellectually taxing nature of each battle in this game due to the enemies leveling up along with your character, I find the freezing bug described in this question far more annoying.

Has anyone else experienced something like this?

I've had it freeze after battle exactly once, though I have had it freeze probably 3 times after Traveling. So I've had the bug, just at no where near the frequency you've had it at.

Had it happen to me about 4 or 5 times and yes it's by far the most annoying bug

No problems here. I wonder if it's related to the system you're playing on? I have a DS Lite, and I wonder if those experiencing lock-ups are playing on one of the later iterations.

Never once had a freeze. Perhaps an issue with a certain kind of DS? What kind are you that are experiencing the bug using? I'm using an ordinary DS Lite with no lockups.
