The problem lies in new CON_ states and the fix for the character duping
bug.  I haven't addressed the problem in my MUD yet, but that should get
things rolling in the right direction.

To OLC+ Users:  Yes, this bug exists in the current release of OLC+.  I may
begin helping somebody out with OLC in their MUD, and it may mean a new
OLC+ release.  Definitely not until bpl15 is released, though.

I didn't know it stopped abbreviations of the name though.

Anyway, perhaps somebody will address this before I sit down to do it.  :)
