[CODE] autoloot

As im the one that origianlly wrote the autoloot way way back when, I felt
a need to jump into this. Ive used that code for 3 years with nary a crash.
Its changes made id think that are causing the crash, as hed stated,
putting in the multiple put/get code.

However the fix to the suggested possible problem:

At the top of:
void damage(struct char_data * ch, struct char_data * victim, int dam,
            int attacktype)

  int mobflag;

Then down at the autoeq code, right before the call to die() add:

    if (IS_NPC(ch))
      mobflag = 1;
      mobflag = 0;

Then after the die call, modify the autoloot line to:

    die(victim, ch);

    if (mobflag && !IS_NPC(ch) && PRF2_FLAGGED(ch, PRF2_AUTOLOOT)) {
     do_get(ch,"all corpse",0,0);

This bypasses the potntial problem by checking if the victim is a mob
before the victim is killed off
