130 - Boss-Abilities

What steps will reproduce the problem? (Leave blank if you don't know)
I create a new boss like:

                    type: boss
                    wave: 1
                    monster: chicken
                    health: high
                    abilities: chain-lightning
                    ability-interval: 10
                    ability-announce: true

But the chicken does nothing...its just a chicken running arround. Also Skills like "Arrow" or "Fireballs" dont do anything...Fireball disappears ~0.1 Secs after castet.

What happens when you follow these steps? What should happen instead?
The Abilites dont work. It would be nice of they work :-)

What versions of MobArena and CraftBukkit are you using?
MA: v0.94.4.13 CraftBukkit: 1.1 devBuild

Do you have an error log of what happened? (Please use
No errorlog appears.

Please provide any additional information below.

    the abilities issue has been fixed, although a new issue has arisen with boss abilities where bosses seem to use it the first time you fight them, then no longer after that. Also, friendly/passive creatures as bosses won't attack directly, but will still use the abilities.

    Please update both Craftbukkit to 1.1-R6 or 1.2.3-R0.1 and MobArena to the latest dev build,

    Hi Diabloste!

    I'm afraid that's not the problem, cause hostile enemies like wolves (which are attacking me) can't do "fireball" (for example) too.

    I presume this would be because the enemy is not hostile but friendly, meaning it doesn't target the players and doesn't do anything towards them, if this is the case, it sure is a bug.
