  Though this is unlikly to be the cause of your problem, you may wish
to look into making sure that you update the class skills and to_hit 
tables in the constants.c (I'm pretty sure that's the correct file for
this) to go all the way up to lev 36 so that the Highest lev immorts/IMPs
can actually perform these skills.  This *might* not be a concern on Circle
code, but I remember having no end of frustration trying to figure out why
the IMP level characters on ShineMUD were worse than a lev 1 mage when it
came to hitting with and attack and also why they couldn't hit with a 
backstab, only to find that when the levels 26-30 were added for immorts
the tables were not expanded to reflect this.  The actual array expansion
is so simple that even a poor C hack like myself could update it while the
real coders did more productive things :)
