        Yeah, this seems to be what's happening.  Anytime Oasis comes across
a room with an extra decription attached to a -1 direction, it prompty
converts it to a0.  Ouch!  This wouldn't be a problem, if it were not for
this technique being used all over the mud.  I show 3 dozen rooms in error.

        It appears to be ok when I save it to memory, but soon as I used
the redit-save command to dump it to disk, then it's fuxed.
