I just got this error in Pre11 while facing Kolvinfirmesestron, the female least daemon, who has acid breath. ADOM crashed but saved the game successfully, so I can provide a savefile if needed. The exact message was "Unknown monster breath type (62) [BDC]."

Some background info: least daemons don't have a breath attack, but in this case (boss monster) it has. I'm not sure what's the best way to fix this, I'll ask Thomas.

I had this happen to me and I (accidentally) made a duplicate bug report, but was pointed here. For more details about my crash, see here:

Added special boss handling to functions where it was still missing. Should be finally fixed now.
