0005051: Giant mosquitoes don't stop spawning -- 172 on map
Noticed my FPS was suddenly cut in half. Checking the unit screen I see there's now 152 Giant Mosquito on the map. I don't think they stop spawning. Nope, 172 now.

For completeness a quote from Toady One: "That mosquito thing is definitely a bug. I haven't looked into it yet, but if they are the only creature acting up you can just delete them from your "raw/objects/creature_bug_slug_new.txt" until I sort it out."

Cleaned up the broken GIANT template to fix this. Before the release, you can add a remove tag in the list in the giant variation to get rid of POPULATION_NUMBER and CLUSTER_NUMBER.
