	I know exactly what to do.  First, purge all players that
	take advantage of this bug.  Second, in db.c under the char
	load procedure check if the level is above MAX_LEVEL, if so,
	close_socket them.

	It may seem harsh, but then, if they're cheating, you don't
	need them around.  They'd be more of a hazard to your MUD
	than anything else.

	Legends of Lore v2 MUD -=[ Isles of Doom and Divinity ]=-

	PS: An alternative that I like better is to set_bit the
	deleted flag on them if the level is >MAX_LEVEL at pfile
	load.  This will prevent anyone from exploiting the bug,
	unless you put in an exception to it... :)
