So was pummelled by escorts on the last patrol with my conning tower taking the brunt of the damage, but manage to escape at was still alive at 242m, but the strangest thing happened when I sufaced, half my crew died as soon as the crew opened the hatch and then the Uboat was lost with all hands half a second after, what gives?

I would say that is a "flooding of conning tower" symtom. Your conning tower is leaking, and when the compartment is full -the crew in it dies. (not completly realistic you say?)
It is very much possible to drown while on land in this game (ram your sub well up on land -and you'll still drown!)
It has it's bugs -but shure: Lots of fun too!

Are you running GWX with a Career that you started in GW/Vanilla? I had this problem when I upgraded to GWX, however once I began a new career with a new Kaleun, the problem magically disappeared. While it was going on, I used to switch to Crew Management view on surfacing, what would happen was that the Watch Crew would go to station, die, and immediately be replaced by a fresh crew, they would die, and this continued until the mission ended due to insufficient crew http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/touche.gif. As I said, starting a new career with a new Kaleun cured the problem.

This happened to me twice. I even started a new career in GWX and it still happened. I'm currently running GWX 1.02 and so far no ultra-bloody crew death.
