Anacreon 2.1c Released

2.1c fixes a bad bug that was causing corruption when saving games. The problem was that I didn't handle the case where a player named someone else's construction and later that construction was completed. The name was left pointing to an invalid construction and the game structures became corrupt. Thanks to Michael O'Connell for finding this bug.

Download 2.1c to fix the problem.
