[BUG][LONG] Mud Crashes after Implementing Haste.

From: Owen Brodal-Robertson (firemage@ZIP.COM.AU)

Ok, I'm stuck here...
My mud seems to be crashing randomly
when players enter into battle, mortal or

It only started happening after I implemented
a haste spell, I'm having trouble working out
why this would've affected it, anyway heres
a gdb listing...

The haste spell I added simply sets the player's
AFF_HASTE, and in perform_violence I added 2

  hit(ch, FIGHTING(ch)....etc)

and then in my dual-wield code.

  hit2(blah blah...)

I know the problem isn't in my dual wield code
another thing I noticed, is that it ALWAYS happens
when in a group, and only sometimes when fightning solo.

Oh yeah, it only happens when the victim is mortally wounded,
if that helps (?)

Thanks in advance.
