Uhm, gee:

  if (GET_OBJ_VAL(obj, 0) >= 0 && GET_OBJ_VAL(obj, 0) <= top_of_roomt) {

Of course, that doesn't verify that the room exists.  Do a real_room()
to get the real number.  If it's equal to NOWHERE (-1) then the room
doesn't exist.

  extern struct index_data *obj_index;

  if (real_room(GET_OBJ_VAL(obj, 0)) == NOWHERE) {
    sprintf(buf, "Obj vnum #%d, val 0: Non-existant destination room.\r\n",
