I had the same problem. I can't remember exactly, but I think there's a
corrupt (read: incorrectly formatted) object in there somewhere. I originally
found the problem while writing an import routine for a world editor I'm writing. I'd suggest taking a good look at the file. Check for an out of value
damage entry for a weapon -- I vaguely remember this as the cause, but
then again, it was late and I didn't document it :(
