This can happen, I have found, for a number of reasons.

a.) Make sure that you have enough reserved commands for movement. So, if
you added in something like diagonal directions (which means I should
probably fix my diag direction patch to be more compatible, shouldnt i?)
you need to up the reserved commands.

Why does this happen? I don't know.

b.) Try running through your interp.c and making sure your commands are in
alphabetical order... if not by the first, then by the second field. Having
the second field off will confuzzle it, it seems.

c.) Fiddle with the second field of the command. Ie, define list as
{ "list", "li", etc.},

>2)  The at command doesn't seem to recognize the new socials correctly.
At works right on the socials... doesnt on aliases, I've noticed.
