GMW and Eschew I

Bug Report
 
Description: Even though my character (Liasanya Whisperwind) has Eschew I, she still needs powdered carbon to cast the spell GMW (innate level 3, sorc also 3). With Eschew I, which negates spell components for spell levels 1-3, I should not need said component.
 
Location: Probably everywhere
 
Verified:
 
Reproducable: It happened on several occasions.

GMW is a cleric level 4 spells, so maybe that's what skews things up?

I wonder, if in the 2da, instead of giving the cleric a different level, why not simply create a copy of the spell Which could be renamed for example Greater Holy weapons, take out all other classes that are not cleric and leave it at level 4. And in the GMW take out the class of cleric. This way 1 now any one else who can cast GMW would be able to take eschew 1 and it cover GMW, and A cleric would have to take eschew 2 to cover GHW?

This was discussed 14 years ago, I don't know why you guys can't keep these things in memory! ;) :P

The last two replies pretty much sum things up.

It's now possible to consider the caster level so it may be easier but then it's also a question of balance. I'll consider making eschew caster level and not highest inate level.
