Here's one problem, if your get_obj_in_list_vis() fails it STILL tries
to GET_OBJ_TYPE() on an object which you havnt located (i.e. NULL).  That
&& should probably be ||.

You really should go through that code and clean it up some though, it
LOOKS like there are some other problems, like some instances where you
are accessing arg2 before you've made sure you got a second arg at all
and whatnot... theres just a lot of if else'ing going on and its hard to
tell at certain points if you've made all the sanity checks you need to.
