Socials and memory

From: Daniel W. Burke (

I found an interesting problem yesterday regarding socials...

When boot_social_messages() counts how many socials to allocate memory 
for, it goes through the cmd_info[] and counts all commands that point to 
But then if you have more socials in the social file then it counts up 
memory for, it doesn't stop, it just overflows the array of socials...

I mention this because it could be the cause of a lot of people's mystery 
crashes..... and I'm trying to figure out a good way to keep that from 
happening without preventing the mud from booting.
