These are virtual numbers.

This index uses rnum -- you are looking in the wrong rooms.

Solution: 1. Use real_room() at every check.
          2. Initialize the array at bootup with the rnum.
             (faster, but array must be permanent )

  rooms[0][0] = real_room(2001); /* room == NOWHERE if vnum does not exist */

Hope that helps.
