Open the file hoarding.dat in a text editor and delete the character in the last line. In my editor it looks like a small arrow.
I recommend to contact the author and asking to fix this file.

It is a control-Z . If read in MS Windows in text mode it should indicate end of file. Any other system, or not in text mode and it would cause problems.
