Bug: Area version numbers > 1 will fail to load at bootup
Danger: Fatal - Aborted bootup with affected area files
Found by: Anavel
Fixed by: Anavel

---

db.c, load_objects

Locate:
      pObjIndex->weight = fread_number( fp );
      pObjIndex->weight = UMAX( 1, pObjIndex->weight );
      pObjIndex->cost = fread_number( fp );
      pObjIndex->rent = fread_number( fp );  /* unused */
      if( area_version == 1 )


Change to:
      pObjIndex->weight = fread_number( fp );
      pObjIndex->weight = UMAX( 1, pObjIndex->weight );
      pObjIndex->cost = fread_number( fp );
      pObjIndex->rent = fread_number( fp );  /* unused */
      if( area_version >= 1 )


Beginning with version 1 area file formats, Smaug started saving certain object data to the files as text strings instead of numbers. This made the area files somewhat easier to read by hand if need be. The problem here lies in the object loading code assuming that *ONLY* version 1 formats would be doing this when it should be relatively obvious that it should be anything from 1 and higher that should do this.
