   Yes,  file_to_string_alloc uses an array to store the data from the
file before it allocates it to a string.  If the file is large than
the string, the MUD will most likely crash.
   The easiest way to fix this is just to make the array larger.  I doubt
it's the _best_ solution, but it will fix it (until you're file gets bigger
than this new array).
