  I just checked out the code in act.wizard.c.  It actually works as 
intended.  The problem is in the syntax.  The do_set function only takes 
3 arguments, name, option, and val_arg.  When you try to set the home 
room with:

set rasmussen loadroom 3054 on

It does set rasmussen's loadroom, but it ignores the "on" argument.  If 
you then type:

set rasmussen loadroom on

Rasmussen will now enter the game in room 3054 (By the Temple).
