I just did a grep for the you are dead line. The only place it appears
in the stock code is in fight.c in damage().

Sooo.... when the char gets the you are dead line, does anyone
receive exprience? Is there a syslog entry saying that the person died?
If none of this happens, try:

grep -i "you are dead" *.c  

or something like it and let us know the _other_ place where the line 
can be printed from
