From error.log:

(port 00 position 00) unk 0000 addr dddddddd

it crashes because the "maincpu" memregion is uninitialized.

Actually, it crashes because it's attempting to read strings (input port names) out of the ROMs without doing any bounds checking whatsoever. If a particular game's string tables are in a different format than what the code expects, or if compare_input_code() hits a false positive (i.e. data in the ROM that looks like the start of the strings table but isn't) then it ends up following garbage pointers and reading past the end of the ROM region.

I tested several sets with 0.249 and no ASAN error or crash on Linux.

They are also all(?) marked MNW.
