It's a long-standing, known bug, even in the win32 version. The server
_is_ keeping track of your progress, but when you restart the game and log
in, the client misreads the status report from the server unless you've
completed _all_ of Basic Training.
So, do this:
1) Start the game.
2) Log in ("report for duty").
3) Hit Tilde to pull down the console, and type "open tactical_training".
4) Complete the training at McKenna MOUT Site.
5) Save your training to the server.
This should fix it.
Alternately, go through all the basic training (rifle range, obstacle
course, weapons training, and MOUT training) without quitting the game,
and save your progress to the server.
Once you get through all the basic training, the game reports your status
correctly (and makes the other missions available from in-game).
