from the mud, using the abbreviations patch.

  1 Xipper  (Nicam)
 10 Xip  (Nicam) (Idle 1m)

You tell Xipper, 'hi'

You tell Xip, 'hi'

        This should be the reverse, I'd think..

        This is only the case if the character with the longer name logs
in after the character with the shorter name logs in, due to the way the
list of playing characters is created when they log in (not the index
which is based on time of creation anyway).

        Is this also an oversight in stock circle?
