Sounds like OasisOLC v1.3, you should upgrade to v1.6a.  The zedit sneaking
problem was fixed in v1.5.

Sounds like you need to update 'medit' so that it will adjust the 'gedit'
tables when you create a new mobile.

If the MUD crashes in the middle of writing it will do that in Oasis v1.3
but not in later versions.

I'll fix any problems you have with OasisOLC but I can't do anything about

Now for the question:

Any objections to putting the social editor on the ftp site into the basic
OasisOLC distribution?  If not, v2.0 will have it after I do my normal
reformatting, fixing, and updating.

And of course, any other suggestions for additions are welcome. (Or
removals, I'm trying to get the improved editor patch to be an independant
but supported entity.)
