i've been running into a bit of trouble with mis-alloced memory. but this 
just started when i 'patched' in the circle 3.00 bpl9 code, if a player 
sets his title, and saves, the title clears, (but only after he saves), 
sometimes when he sets the title the mud crashes with a gdb trace like this:

(gdb) where
#0  0x60009d6d in end ()
#1  0x3df68 in do_set (ch=0xbffff8ac, argument=0x3df68 "U\211e\201l\230\013",
    cmd=-1073743812, subcmd=256344) at act.wizard.c:2216
#2  0x6f2e5 in set_title (ch=0x1a9a00, title=0xbfffee80 "why?") at limits.c:155
#3  0x3e958 in do_set (ch=0x1a9a00,
    argument=0xbffff8ab " player mobius title why?", cmd=243, subcmd=0)
    at act.wizard.c:2422
#4  0x668a3 in command_interpreter (ch=0x1a9a00,
    argument=0xbffff8a8 "set player mobius title why?") at interpreter.c:706
#5  0x2659 in game_loop (mother_desc=3) at comm.c:525
#6  0x1766 in init_game (port=4000) at comm.c:219
#7  0x1664 in main (qargc=3, argv=0xbffffc6c) at comm.c:190

sometimes i wont even get stack traces with this much info, usually 
they're just:
(gdb) where
#0  0x60009d6d in end ()
#1  0x0 in ?? ()

any help, is some help, thanks lots
