"Unknown FileDataID" Crash with Skeletons

This occurs because the following FileData.dbc entries are missing:
199666 - World\Generic\PassiveDoodads\DeathSkeletons\DwarfFemaleDeathSkeleton.m2
199668 - World\Generic\PassiveDoodads\DeathSkeletons\GnomeFemaleDeathSkeleton.m2
199669 - World\Generic\PassiveDoodads\DeathSkeletons\GnomeMaleDeathSkeleton.m2
199676 - World\Generic\PassiveDoodads\DeathSkeletons\ScourgeFemaleDeathSkeleton.m2
199677 - World\Generic\PassiveDoodads\DeathSkeletons\ScourgeMaleDeathSkeleton.m2
323308 - World\Generic\PassiveDoodads\DeathSkeletons\WorgenMaleDeathSkeleton.m2
629748 - World\Generic\PassiveDoodads\DeathSkeletons\PandarenFemaleDeathSkeleton.m2

I hope this doesn't encourage griefers to roll these characters and then die in public areas, resulting in mass crashes, but seeing how this really -NEEDS- to be fixed, it is worth the risk.

Also, there is no fix for this. Repairing, deleting folders, etc does nothing except waste time. Spending time (waiting) is actually the temporary solution for the problem, since skeletons despawn after 10-15 minutes.

In the meantime, don't roll Dwarf females, Gnomes, Undeads, Worgen males, or Pandaren females OR don't die.

My kingdom for a patch on this issue :(

No ETA but we want to fix this as soon as possible. Definitely a huge impact on testing.
