[d2x 0.60 beta 2] Apocalyptic factor briefings doesn't play, Level 3 boss not moving
I'm playing the Apocalyptic factor mission downloaded from the

DMDB: http://www.enspiar.com/dmdb/viewMission.php?id=418

This mission is supposed to have a long briefing, but it doesn't play, it goes straight into the game.

Also the boss in level 3 doesn't move. It's supposed to be a diamond clawing boss that chases and claws the player.

Briefings and the boss works in 0.58. But not in 0.60.
The mission file is buggy. It explicitly states that there is no briefing. Old versions of Descent incorrectly ignored that statement. Use d_fname for DOS filenames (July 2014) fixed the parser to respect an explicitly blank briefing.

Change handling of explicitly blank briefings restores the parsing bug, since it is too late to fix the mission file. Please sync to tip and retest. If this is acceptable, I will backport it to 0.60-stable.
I was unable to debug the boss problem as I cannot readily find the boss. Please provide instructions on how to reach it.
