If the seperate program were run via the mud you would probably still have
problems with crashes when the immortals lose link. Your best solution is
to make sure that the immort is removed from the OLC and cleaned up after
when he loses link. Look for the code where the immort quits the editor
about the cleanup process and follow that as a working example for
cleaning up after link-dead immorts in the OLC. Not too hard, but needed
to make the mud stable.
