	I've been having this problem too.  Here's what I discovered...
If you do a grep -n -i save_char *.c, you'll notice that sometimes it 
saves the char with ch->in_room as the room, other times as NOWHERE, 
which means they'll load in the temple...

So you can either change all of them to save_char(ch, ch->in_room); (or 
what needs to go there) or do something like

   save_char(ch, ch->in_room);
   save_char(ch, NOWHERE);

Good Luck
