I started an elf ranger in rev. e967277, and upon examining my starting arrows in my quiver, I got a long list of damage vs. various creatures. They're just bog-standard arrows! Why am I getting this?

edit: in case it's relevant, I did load a save from a previous v4 version, and started a new character on that save... am I not supposed to do that?

Why am I getting this?I have explained this twice before, most recently in http://angband.oook.cz/forum/showthread.php?t=5306.

The object info code is erroneously applying slays from all equipment to arrows - it doesn't affect how much damage arrows actually do, but renders the info display misleading and useless. Sorry - this will be fixed in the archery overhaul.

If this is a starting character though he would not have any equipment with slays...
