fname procedure

I'm having problems with the fname() procedure call, when one of my users 
calls the wake ACMD via. an alias, the fname procedure crashes the MUD.
I havent been able to replroduce it, or find out what the error means, so 
I thought I'd post it here for someone to discover my heartbreaking 
troubles :)

Anyway, I'm running a modified 3.0 bpl8 ... if thats important.. 

Any help/ideas on solving my problem will be awarded with lost of 
love-spam *grin*
