Again, RTFC.  The CMD_IS macro cannot be used there; in fact, look
at the CMD_IS macro (in interpreter.h, I believe).  You'll see your
folly immediately.  What you should do is down at the bottom, before
the check for the special (or immediately after, depending upon your
preference), you should check what the value is.  Another problem
that could have been solved by "RTFC".

You want to compound the exp per level, then (and probably don't
want to subtract GET_EXP!).

  for (vv = GET_LEVEL(victim); vv < newlevel; v++)
    needed_exp = level_exp(GET_CLASS(victim), vv);
  gain_exp_regardless(victim, needed_exp);
