Well, as far as I see the problem, it's concerned with the piece of 
'code' in fight.c somewhere, where you get an XP bonus for each hit you 
do (is this warrior only ? - look it up :). It's allso dependent on the 
damroll/total dam of the hit and stuff as far as I remember. It's easy to 
get rid off, as we did on my mud, and YES, it's a way of leveling... 

Well, check and see if thats it.. probably in hit().
