Oh, and a white-oak stake.
did you not backup your world before opening it in a buggy test version?
remember that world can NEVER be reverted to release version now its been opened in the newer snapshot, always backup and use none important world in snapshots

I did, but the bugger was hiding from me! I eventually found a working backup though, so no sweat.
Crisis avoided. Depression chocolates put neatly back on the shelf.
