Ok, look at the player loading mechanism.  Not sure, if you have ASCII
PFiles or not, but thats not that important right now... the point is,
that if when the player data is loaded, it might check if the LOADROOM
bit is set, and if it isn't, yet a room is present, that it sets the bit

Basically, the question is, are you setting the bit?  If not, try it.
