I fixed the issues with the patch and uploaded it to the tracker:

The only thing that is missing is a check for older files. (See the 
description on the tracker for further information) I still need to find 
out, where the Bone structs getting allocated while opening and existing 
file. A small check for "0" and one initial computation with the current 
method should do the job. Any files that are stored afterwards will be 
fine, since the check will always fail.
