Circle uses a table with the player names and their position in the player file
which is intitialised at boot up time.

If you change a name in the player file you must also change the name in this
table (or reboot the whole mud).

Be sure to check that the name you are changing to isn't already used.

I think that table is called player_index but I'm not sure.
