Hmm. The following is taken from handler.c equip_char():

  if (ch->in_room != NOWHERE) {
    if (pos == WEAR_LIGHT && GET_OBJ_TYPE(obj) == ITEM_LIGHT)
      if (GET_OBJ_VAL(obj, 2))	/* if light is ON */
  } else
    log("SYSERR: ch->in_room = NOWHERE when equipping char.");

The way I see it world[r_mortal_start_room].light will get screwed.
If it's as you say and nothing gets affected, could you please explain
how that's possible? Is there any difference between
d->character->in_room and ch->in_room or what?

(I tried setting d->character->in_room in interpreter.c before it calls
 Crash_load(), but I still got the SYSERR. Haven't figured that one out
 yet.. I've followed the code all the way down to the error message
 and it just should not be!? *shrug*)
