=>#1 - Not sure if CircleMUD is fixed, it should be.

As of pl4 (i know it's old) it wasn't.
this should fix it:

for (temp2 = descriptor_list; temp2; temp2 = nextd) {
  nextd = temp2->next;
  if ((temp2 != d) && temp2->character && !IS_NPC(temp2->character) &&
     !strcmp(CAP(tmp_name), GET_NAME(temp2->character))) {
        SEND_TO_Q("That name is being used, try another.\r\n"
                  "Name: ", d);

=>#2 - CircleMUD lists objects one at a time so it should not crash.
=>     (However, show_obj_to_char() uses page_string() instead of
=>        send_to_char() so I'm not 100% positive...try it.) :)

I have crashed a mud by donating 10000 coins, one at a time, then going to
the donation room and typing look a few times.  Object stacking solves
this problem though. (or do what i did and merge piles of coins together)

=>#5 - Not much to do about that one.

Sure there is. If the mud isn't a pk mud add in a check to see if the mob
is charmed and if the master is a player. If so, don't allow them to
rescue mobs, hit players, etc.
