I've noticed this too. Here is the relevant code from interpreter.c
autoeq patch is installed):

    case '1':
      if (PLR_FLAGGED(d->character, PLR_INVSTART))
        GET_INVIS_LEV(d->character) = GET_LEVEL(d->character);

      /* put character to their loadroom before autoequipping them */
      if ((load_room = GET_LOADROOM(d->character)) != NOWHERE)
        load_room = real_room(load_room);

      /* If char was saved with NOWHERE, or real_room above failed... */
      if (load_room == NOWHERE) {
        if (GET_LEVEL(d->character) >= LVL_IMMORT)
          load_room = r_immort_start_room;
          load_room = r_mortal_start_room;

      if (PLR_FLAGGED(d->character, PLR_FROZEN))
        load_room = r_frozen_start_room;

      char_to_room(d->character, load_room);
      if ((load_result = Crash_load(d->character)))
        if (GET_LEVEL(d->character) < LVL_IMMORT &&
            !PLR_FLAGGED(d->character, PLR_FROZEN)) {
          char_to_room(d->character, load_room);

      save_char(d->character, NOWHERE);
      send_to_char(WELC_MESSG, d->character);
      d->character->next = character_list;
      character_list = d->character;
      act("$n has entered the game.", TRUE, d->character, 0, 0,

      if (!GET_LEVEL(d->character)) {
        send_to_char(START_MESSG, d->character);
      look_at_room(d->character, 0);
      if (has_mail(GET_IDNUM(d->character)))
        send_to_char("You have mail waiting.\r\n", d->character);
      if (load_result == 2) {   /* rented items lost */
        send_to_char("\r\n\007You could not afford your rent!\r\n"
          "Your possesions have been donated to the Salvation
      d->prompt_mode = 1;

If anyone can shed some light on what's going on it would be most
