There is one flaw with this, I may be wrong but I believe send_to_char 
adds that string to the descriptors queue, so that if the mud crashes 
right after a send_to_char but before a pulse the message will just sit 
on the queue and never get sent. The better way to do this would be to 
either use a debugger (gdb or dbx) or to use log, or some other function 
that outputs immeadiatly.
