      Hi Keith,

      Glad you can use 5.16.1 now! It's certainly got lots of improvements over the earlier version. There's an existing tracker for the points issue, I'm not sure if it'll be fixed in the 5.16.2 release or the next major release, but we've got our eyes on it now :)

I used the exact same file in 5.14.1 to load him, so it wasn't a corruption in the file. I'll re-install, and of course not be able to repeat the issue (since the mechanics are now looking under the hood. *laugh*)

I've no idea why, and I even went to the trouble to verify that I did not screw up on how many points I spent. (In other words, for safety, I did the character long-hand and compared them. They match. No overspending.)

Can someone tell me where I need to look? I want it to read zero, as it should, not -52.
