You can't level in the meantime? Or are you one of those spacebar players who rushed through the game and is now complaining about lack of end-game?
I suspect it's the latter.
Without these "spacebar players" getting there early and finding this out, it could've been you not being able to run them and you on here complaining about it.
How about saying thanks for finding a bug and lets hope it gets fixed before we get there?
