Possible encounter issue in Kepler
Just can't stay away

Now i've been going through the encounter code for weeks now, and when i got to the Kepler code, bearing in mind i have jflp installed i came across this,

nickname = Zone_Iw05_Tradelane_2
pos = -8100, 0, -18397
rotate = 0, 173, 0
shape = BOX
size = 520, 520, 30520
comment = . Tradelane to ames
lane_id = 2
tradelane_down = 20
sort = 2
toughness = 8
density = 6
repop_time = 15
max_battle_size = 4
pop_type = major_tradelane
relief_time = 15
encounter = tradelane_trade_transport, 8, 0.24
faction = co_kt_grp, 0.26
faction = co_ni_grp, 0.16
faction = co_shi_grp, 0.26
faction = co_ss_grp, 0.32
encounter = area_trade_freighter_pirate, 8, 0.11
faction = gd_z_grp, 1

As far as i was aware, while you can have different encounters in a tradelane starting with tradelane_, i wasn't aware an area code will work. Surely that should be tradelane_trade_freighter, as there isn't a tradelane_trade_freighter_pirate encounter. Shouldn't make any difference as all it does is make the npc behave a certain way.

Anyway, not aware an area encounter can work in a tradelane, just thought i'd mention it

Bering (IW01, line 373) and Hamburg (RH02, line 1201) also have those area encounters in tradelanes.

I've been getting random crashes in these systems, may or may not be related to this which is why i'm on an encounter witch hunt atm. I suppose the argument is if the encounter is declared then it should work, i'm just fuzzy on area encounters working in a tradelane, not logical
