You may need to make a small change in char_to_store in db.c.  I thought
it copied player name and put it in the pfile, but it sounds like that
isn't the case in your code.  One other note, tho, is that the
player_table keeps track of all the players, so if the new name does get
saved to the pfile and they try to log back on before a reboot, they'll
have to login with the old name, tho I think they'll enter the game with
the new one.
