request for areas that make the mud crash

I'm once again trying to improve Circle's parser so that it's impossible

for about 2 years.. it doesn't seem like it should be that difficult of
a task, though (?).

Anyway, the current parser has a few errors that were exposed by the elven
area on the FTP site (elven.tar.gz), but if anyone knows of any other areas
that can cause a crash, or even a misleading diagnostic error message, please
let me know ASAP so that I can fix the parser before the upcoming release of
