The trick is that the thief is not supposed to react to commands any
player uses. Instead, he is called each 'mob tick' (ie.: when they
try to move and stuff), with a cmd equal to 0 and will thus pass
the 'if (cmd) return FALSE;' part. If your thief never gets to the
rest of the spec_proc check if 'MOB_SPEC' is set for that mob. 

See ya !
