- This happened to me too.  I wrote a routine that calculated the number of 
- attacks one obtained as a function of haste/slow and multi-attack status.  
- It then called hit from fight.c the requested number of times.  The routine 
- worked fine until the mob died when the mud crashed.
- According to gdb termination occurred at this line in the hit function in 
- fight.c:
-   if (ch->in_room != victim->in_room) {
-     if (FIGHTING(ch) && FIGHTING(ch) == victim)
-       stop_fighting(ch);

When victim dies, it's extracted with extract_char(victim).  Once that
happens, any more attacks will crash the mud when you try to access
victim->in_room.  You need a check to make sure victim is a non-null
