Follow-up Comment #5, bug #16003 (project freeciv):
Sorry for responding so late.
Your patch certainly makes sense. The trunk client will still crash though,
when connecting to an unpatched 2.2 or a 2.1.5 server. I consider this to be
a problem, because unpatched servers will be on people's machines for any
time to come. The client should deal properly with "legacy" servers.
In testing this, I got a little confused by the fact that "make distclean"
doesn't delete the script-generated files like client/packhand_gen.c, even
when run in the source directory. Maybe one could change that, so I attached
a simple patch.
