Hmm, it appears to be a memory overwrite from somewhere that is screwing up the hotkey line types. I'll take a look and see if I can't figure out where the problem is coming from.

Yep, an array for the UI code will start to overwrite the hotkey line array after a certain number of elements. It looks like [V] chose that number based on a guess of how many elements would be visible on the screen at a single time. The number of elements for the UI array is 42, but at a resolution of 1024x768 or above, you can get up to 45 elements in use.

So, another bug we can blame on Volition. ;)

I'll bump the limit up to 50, which is more than enough, since needing any more than that would actually require someone to rewrite that interface code. I'll also add in a couple of Assert()'s to catch this in the future, just in case someone does change the code to require more lines.
