can't load save file. anti-save scumming feature?

Hello everyone,

I've a half-elf mage named Prestolist, but his save file won't load. Instead it sits there in a forlorn, grayer font than usual.

My Macbook's hard drive recently quit on me (absolutely not my fault and not the result of violence), and in the course of restoring the system, I copied up-to-date backups of my Angband files over to the new drive. It's occurred to me that reloading a file from a backup probably looks very like reloading a file from a dead character.

Can anyone tell me how to make the file load? He's not dead (yet), and he just found a staff of *Destruction*, somewhere before level 5, even, so you know the RNG likes him.
