What is it that causes the crash, exactly?  A 'D' statement on a door
that doesn't exist?  I'm wondering because much of Circle is designed
specifically to prevent these run-time crashes (i.e. all of the "attempt
to equip non-existant mob" messages, etc.), and I'd like to add checking
for that too.

(I should probably know what causes those 'D' crashes, but it's been 
so darn long since I've actually seen one personally.. ;-))
