There is the block of code that looks like this:

  for (i = 0; i < MAX_SPELL_AFFECTS; i++)
    if (af[i].bitvector || (af[i].location != APPLY_NONE))
      affect_join(victim, af+i, accum_duration, FALSE, accum_affect, FALSE);

Just before that code you should add:

  for (i = 0; i < MAX_SPELL_AFFECTS; i++)
    if (AFF_FLAGGED(victim, af[i].bitvector)) {
      send_to_char(NOEFFECT, ch);

It will check if the player is affected by any bitvectors the spell
includes, and if so, it will report that the spell has no effect and
returns.  Seems the best way to me.
