I use the same menudriven olc and i have run into quite a few bugs/crashes.
First, it dosen't like to write the .obj files without putting a few 
higher ASCII chers in there 'yes, ANSI higher' and i can't even get pico 
to write anything like thay, but i have had to trash 3 obj files in the 3 
weeks i'v been useing that olc.

Also it will crash the mud if more then one person is editing the same 
zone obj file 'i.e Skolnick is editing obj 7022 and Al doing obj 7045'.

Then 3 times, it would end in a error a lot like the one you have.

What I am going to do is get a coder, a good one, and have them make a 
new OLC, Or, you can try the new circ-olc v2 patch at
'olc_patch_v2' or something like that, i just installed it last night.

Hope this helps any others with that OLC.
