[NEWBIE] problem with copyover

From: Seung Yul Lee (sylee@INTERGATE.BC.CA)

i got the copyover patch from ftp.circlemud.org and hand patched into the circle bpl14..
there were no errors or warnings when i compile..
however when i enter the game
and type 'copyover'
it copyovers nicely but after copyover does its job..
whenever i enter in anything (command or just return key),
the mud crashes and makes core file..
i used gdb on core file and got these..

(gdb) list
1828            if (cnt == 0)   /* At top, loop to bottom. */
1829              cnt = HISTORY_SIZE;
1830          }
1831        } else {
1832          strcpy(t->last_input, tmp);
1833          if (t->history[t->history_pos])
1834            free(t->history[t->history_pos]);       /* Clear the old line. *
1835          t->history[t->history_pos] = str_dup(tmp);        /* Save the new.
1836          if (++t->history_pos >= HISTORY_SIZE)     /* Wrap to top. */
1837            t->history_pos = 0;

i have no idea what it is got to do with copyover..

Anyone has any idea how to fix this problem?
