Yes, and unfortunately a fatal flaw.  I slapped this together
quickly without much recent experience in DIKU.  There are 2 flaws
in what I wrote that stick out.  One is the flaw Mathue pointed
out...the second is the lack of a "continue;" after the first
attack's "else" clause.  It should look like:

} else {

You want to abort this players 2nd, 3rd, and 4th attacks if
the stop_fighting(ch) is called, or the player will start
doing things to a NULL ch->specials.fighting reference.
The continue will skip the rest of the for() loop, and move onto
the next player on the list.  At least I think it should =)
