This is not a code solution, but a policy one. If someone is editing a
room, don't make a new room until they are done. Go on and edit something
else. My staff of builders is very small (less than 10), and only 1-3 are
on at any one time, so this is not a problem.

I was not aware of this problem, and now that I am, the new policy is in
effect until I can fix the code for it.

If anyone else fixes it, please post, and I will do the same when I have
time. (Currently enthralled by another project.)
