We did it like this: we made go_home(ch), that will put the char where it

 *   to make characters recall to their houses if not grouped.       *
 *    By Wodan, Gekke Eekhoorn and Sungoku a bit.                    *
 *                                                                   *

    return r_frozen_start_room;

  if ((load_room = real_room(GET_LOADROOM(ch))) < 0) {

       not go to his house. I don't care. Gekke. */

You have to put something that clears the loadroom of a char in clear_char...
(Could be you have to put some more in it, dunno any more...)
(And you replace the junk in nanny with go_home and you remove a 
(And if you feel like it, you can make a 'home' command for imms and a 
home all for imps) (I did :)
(Of course, now, a char will also be put in his house when he quitted 
there :) Great, no?)
(I should stop using brackets now.)

The reason this works is because PLR_LOADROOM is only used to determine 
wether or not a char's loadroom should be overwritten.
