After finding the offending fclose(fll); line I removed it but then someone
else mentioned that it was that the line before it didn't have 'fll =' on
it.  So I added the fclose(fll); back on and changed the fopen line above
it.  First thing I noticed was that I "lost" my test piece of meat.   After
that I did some testing with a new piece of meat and it works just fine.  So
I guess the snippet needs to be updated.
change line 115 of roomsave.txt to:
   fll = fopen(buf, "wb");

that should fix the problem unless I am mistaken and we all know how rare a
thing that is ;)
I just hate errors.  I hope everyone has enjoyed this discussion about this
one line that caused a whole mud to crash.  I think it has been resolved now.
