Hrm, if this turns out to really be a bug you should have posted it 20
minutes earlier ;-)

I know. Great timing. Your update notice came in as I was sending.

Let me guess. You're using Silvio's Windows build? He had such a change in
one of the patches he sent me. In the upstream sources it's not possible
to undo such a move, precisely because of the issues this causes.

I found this bug in the Windows Mobile/PPC version. It's named "Iaccarino's Crimson Fields" and the install .exe indicates it is version 0.5.0.
I downloaded it from here: http://www.freewareppc.com/games/crimsonfieldsmobile.shtml
According to that page, it is indeed Silvio Iaccarino's build/port.

Any idea why he made that change?
