Well, it's a feature *grin*
It's got a little to do with your OLC package, and a lot with the client
MajorBBS uses, and many other clients for that matter.
The reason is that Obuild, as well as Oasis has a tendency to add ^M's
(\r's in C lingo I think) if you use cut and paste to add room
descriptions and stuff. So, someone has to come up with a foolproof fix
for the OLC or you need to manually remove all the \r's from all the
worldfiles once in a while.
Now you know, how to fix it, well.. ask someone else *g*
