      I created a Druid with a couple of custom wands (druid spells) and
      saved. This was 20/9/02, so presumably version 4.0.0. When I re-
      opened today (version 4.1.1) I got the message:-

      Warning Illegal Equipment line ignored: EQUIPNAME ..........(all the
      description line)
      Error: Malformed PCG element: SPELLNAME

      for each item.

      The relevant lines in the .PCG are:

      EQUIPNAME:Wand (Speak with Animals/Druid/3rd)

        Ok, I'm repeating this for the last time.

        PCGen 4.0.0 introduced a new format for saved characters.
        Unfortunately there was a bug with customized items which contained
        spell informations (e.g. wands).
        To fix this, the way custom items are loaded/saved with PCs had to be
        rewritten and unfortunately in a not-backwards-compatible way
        (because I could not think of one ...)!
