Re: [nbos] Small Bodies in Astro2.

Unfortunately if you attempt to bring up the Travel Calculator on
planet that has a "Small Bodies" child with a distance of 0 it results
in an invalid floating point violation error and the travel calculator
window never opens. If you set the distance to any value greater than
0 this does not happen. I sent a bug report in on this issue on
9/9/08 and added a fix for this into my GURPS System Updater. I could
quickly write a small standalone script to apply this fix as well.
