I experienced the same problems with the dig command. I made a simple fix
that allows a player to dig up only one item in the room at a time (that
is if there are more than one)... this also fixed finding objects from
differnt zones problem that you have. My code has changed from the
original snippet, but I believe all that was needed to fix the problem
was a return; command...I'll post what I believe to be the fix from the
original snippet, if this doesn't work e-mail me (not the list) and I'll
try to help you out.

in do_dig:
while (obj != NULL) {
   if (IS_BURIED(obj)) {
      if (CAN_SEE...) {
         found_item = 1;
         return;  <- add this
      } else {
   obj = obj->next;

The ...'s means I'm too lazy to type out what should be there.
