You're opening a Hexen-format WAD (such as a ZDoom WAD) in Doom format.

Yeah, that's the most likely case. If the map has a BEHAVIOR lump, it's in Hexen format. The THINGS and LINEDEFS lumps have different sized structures, and since there are no headers in these things, just raw data, the engine has no way of knowing where a record starts and where it stops other than from the size it is supposed to have.

There is some technical information here if you're curious.
