Mmh, I would say that the olc-routine frees all allocated storage space 
when exiting from it. That would explain your problem. It'd say make sure 
that the strings (and other stuff) you use are also copied with the mob,
and that the pointers to them are put into the final mob-prototype.

I got similar problems when I edited the (unfinished, standard pl10) olc-

See ya !

P.S.: If you still can't find the bug, just send me the code.. I'll look
through it, and won't have to write it myself :)
