Description

1. Start a new ToB game with Daria (pre-generated character)
2. Use console to level up

C:SetCurrentXP("8000000");

3. Create and Learn Chain Contingency Scroll

C:CreateItem("SCRL9Q")

3. Create and Learn Horrid Wilting

C:CreateItem("SCRL9G")

4. Fill spell memorization slots with Chain Contingency and Horrid Wilting
5. Rest
6. Quicksave and Cast Chain Contingency

Observed
Chain Contingency either crashes the game, and/or does not display any level 8 spells, and/or allows the level 9 spells tab to be selected (Even though chain contingency should only permit up to level 8 spells to be stored)

Expected
Game should not crash.
Tab to select level 9 spells should not be enabled
Level 8 spells should be displayed when clicking the "8" tab

Notes
Internal report #23200

Crash from casting Chain Contingency usually occurs when starting a new game, but crashes less often when loading a savegame.
The inability to select level 8 spells was introduced in 2.1
The ability to select level 9 spells was observed in 2.0
