NOT HAPPY !!! (Was: Re: [pcgen][bug] Willpower vs. Will - NOT working)
- Ah....... OK now I see (apologies to the original poster)
OK, we've started a discussion on this on our dev list and with the
data monkeys. We'll probably have to start referring to items by a
key instead of their name or provide a (constantly updated) tool that
converts data for users.
Bugger and damn, should've seen this coming (I always recreate my
characters as a matter of course, so I didn't experience it myself) :-(.

the SRD files. You should be using the PHB/DMG/MM sets from CMP as
well as whatever "addons" you're using.
It's that mixing of SRD and non-SRD (and PHB/DMG/MM in this context
are non-SRD as they're the CMP renditions of those books) that will
always always be a pain/nightmare/bugfest.
