I've encountered this problem on my latest world.
One on the caves has a glitch, it can't save while I'm inside, and every time I go back in, it generates a new cave:
- If I save & quit while in the cave, I end up on the 'carving out cave' screen when I reload the game. I will find myself at the entrance of a NEW cave, inventory all empty.
- The 'above world' is unaffected, but time freezes while I'm exploring the cave. When I get out of the cave, everything is exactly as I left it, the day is the same, food hasn't perished, even if I spent 10 days underground.
- If I exit the cave alive, and go back in immediatly, it generates a new cave.
This bug only affects the 2nd cave. The 1st cave I explored earlier in the game is acting normal. I haven't explored the 3rd cave yet.
It's pretty annoying because that cave is right next to my base, and I would like to build an underground base.
I am not using any mods.

I was in a cave fighting slurtles, killed them all, saved & quit. When I reloaded the game later, it generated a new cave, all my inventory was gone, except for willow's lighter, I also lost chester. How to reproduce: Go in the cave, explore, get out. Next time I go in, it generates a brand new cave.
