[PF] Combination of sources with PRECAMPAIGN stops Alertness working

Description

This is a bit of a weird one - Alertness' bonus to Perception stops working with multiple sources loaded that use PRECAMPAIGN (see attached pcg - this e.g. uses Core, APG & Super Genius Games' Adventurers Handbook).

This seems to be fixed if the PRECAMPAIGN lines are commented out of sggah.pcc, but that of course stops that source working as intended and I can't see any problem that might interact with Perception/Alertness in the relevant .lsts.

Help?

Found another symptom of the problem at the linked bug.

Not with 30 mins of mucking about... have you got a brilliant idea?

In particular all of the following work fine, despite including a similar |PRECAMPAIGN:1,INCLUDES=<source> construct:

  • UC + UM

  • ACG + ARG

  • ISWG + Bestiary

  • ISWG + Champions of Corruption

  • Occult Adventures + Arcane Anthology

So it seems to be unique to this source (SGGAH) with any of its (functional) PRECAMPAIGN lines (i.e. SGGAH works fine with only Core).

More weirdness. If I remove the |PRECAMPAIGN:1,Advanced Player's Guide lines and just make the source dependent on the APG, the problem goes away.

I'm going to go ahead and commit this as a fix; a slightly unnecessary dependency on the APG is hardly a hardship.

Darn, this fix is not a "stable" fix - it now works sometimes and doesn't work sometimes - suggest this isn't incorporated into master.

Afraid I'm not sure how to "withdraw" the PR ... nor do I seem able to unwind the bug status back from PR submitted

I'm unable to follow if this is code or data?
