Summary 0009879: Vine stalker keeps its racial bite frequency in dragon form
Description Vine stalker's bite has a (str+dex) in 50 chance of triggering on an attack. I don't know what the formula is for e.g. a human in dragon form but a quick test in wizmode shows that even with maxed UC and 72 stats a human does not bite every attack whereas a a vine stalker does (dragon form or not). VS however does NOT keep the antimagic effect in dragon form.

Vp also has an innate bite aux but it doesn't bite in dragon form any more than other races so it doesn't make sense VS is just intrinsically good at biting or something.

Also FWIW VS' innately high stats and the free +10 str gives them an almost guaranteed bite in dragon form. No idea whether this affects bite damage or not. Probably it shouldn't.

Seems not intended and a bug since all other aux attacks are aware of temporary mutation state. Patch'd.
