The problem is solved because the editor no longer writes complete wml saved units in the scenario files.

Still, this looks like a problem with the serialization.
Thus I keep the bug open and give it back to the unassigned pool.

To reproduce: Open the map editor. Add a side, then add an Ancient Lich to the map. Save the map and exit the editor. Click on Multiplayer-->Local Game. You get an error message, and are returned to the main screen:
The line number points to this line in the new map.cfg file:
The string is terminated, but there is a line break first, which seems to be causing the error message.

Playing or loading a campaign does not cause this error. An Ancient Lich in the map file does, but an Elvish Marksman does not, despite having the same Special Notes lines in its description.
