Don't leave bones on levels which had hangup saves

DescriptionAvoids hangup exploits from leaking from one game into another
 This patch prevents the use of hangup exploits in order to leave otherwise impossible bones files, via marking levels on which hangups have occurred as non-bones-leaving.

This information is stored in an otherwise unused bit of the save data. As such, it does not break save compatibility, in the sense that patched and unpatched 3.4.3 can load each others' save files. However, it might potentially conflict with other patches that attempt to store data in the same place.
