Probably should'a checked, but it seems ANGRYABOUTELVES has hit the same issue and was faster.

* Fixed a bug in the last few versions (since parallel load) that was causing exceptions in trying to cast to external data for various factions.
** We were not initially seeing this much, for some reason, but StarKelp was running into it internally with his own mod doing it intermittently. Now it's happening regularly after we put in some enforced sorting on these rows.
** For now we've just fixed the problem with the existing data, but this whole thing exposes an underlying weakness in the way that we link external data into the game. If people later are playing with multiple mods and change their mod order, they will potentially wind up with this bug without us being able to fix it (as far as their existing campaigns go). If both mods both have external data on the same units, which is actually not the majority case at all. So it's probably an outside chance of it happening naturally in playing. At any rate, it's on our list of things to refactor sometime after multiplayer, to be a bit more flexible in general, just in case.
