The crash is caused because the player_specials isn't initialized for a
character which had previously been deleted.  The fix is just adding one
line (marked by the +) in the function nanny in interpreter.c:

       if (PLR_FLAGGED(d->character, PLR_DELETED)) {        /* line 1102   */
          CREATE(d->character, struct char_data, 1);
+         CREATE(d->character->player_specials, struct player_special_data, 1);
          d->character->desc = d;

Is there a list of reported bugs available anywhere?
