Sounds like a problem with real_room() being missing.  Since there are 
vnums and rnums for rooms, you gotta make sure that you take care to 
separate them.  I'm not sure WHERE the code would be to look into that.  
If anything, I would look at where the room nums are assigned, then check 
to see that everything is real_room()'ed.  Also, check to see if you 
don't accidentally real_room it more than once.  So also check your 
'recall' code.  I wrote my own hometown code from scratch, so I didn't 
have to use someone else's code (It's easier for me to debug it if I know 
it well enough)
