So, it looks like this issue between BGT and GemRB goes back to 2009 and hasn't been fixed yet? Ouch... And yes, it sounds like files can be altered, but also sounds like the alterations (at least in the thread linked) caused other breaks.
Hickory: Guys, I wish I could help you with regard to Android/GemRB, but I have no knowledge of either. What I can do, however, is say that this surely must be a mod (BGT) issue. I will point you to this old post over at Gibberlings, where Avenger states that starting XP is moddable in GemRB. Also see the bottom link in that forum.
Well, I think I'll mostly just stick to playing BGT on my laptop/desktop. I'll probably just play vanilla on my tablet, maybe with Fixpack and Unfinished Business being the only mods. I'll have to re-create my character, but GateKeeper works for that. For my main, I'm using the half-elf Fighter/Mage character from the official Baldur's Gate Strategy Guide and just use GateKeeper to make her stats match. No other tweaking allowed, and I don't even use the actual walkthrough in the game.
Thanks for the links, Hickory! =)
