It may be my copy, I see to remember changing something so it didnt crash
when I put it in originally, but that was a long time ago. Re-d/led it and
did some diffing and couldnt see any difference between the two... like I
say, it's probably my copy. Then again, that was why I was asking if anyone
else used it. ;-)

You got it. I'll try to find a way to make it flexible so you'll easily be
able to work in something like subguilds, since once you have a guild
system that tends to crop up as a next request. ;-)
