If it works in gdb and doesn't work outside of it, maybe it's a timing

Maybe a routine gets kicked off that doesn't finish before the mud tries
to use the value?

On MSVC I'd run it with a watch set set to break upon a change in
the player's struct. On gdb I assume there is a way (though I have never
needed to use it) to have the program break when a value changes..

Just a thought.
