Based on comparisons with other versions that I can find online, I believe "If more than half of the pirates accept the proposal" should read "If at least half of the pirates accept the proposal".

This is a serious issue, as the puzzle depends critically upon what happens when exactly 50% of pirates accept a proposal. Is it an error, or a variation?
