I also have a problem with hedit, but fixing it is very
low on my list of things to do.  It lets me create a
new entry, says it saves it, but when I reboot the mud,
the new entry isn't there.  This same problem also
occurs with aedit, and I suspect the problems are
related.   But if I oedit, for example, the changes
are saved.  I suspect it is as simple as it is just
saves the entries to memory but not to disk, but you
would think the OLC+ patch (the latest version which
include DG Scripts as an integral part of it) would not
have such a glaring error in it ;O
