        It's not a bug. Just look in your code for the check which looks
and sees if your stats are > than 18, to set them to 18...

        I know that affect_modify in handler.c has one of these checks..or
is that affect_total?
        Do set uses the 'range' marco as well..
                Something like RANGE(3,18) I believe makes the entered
number between that range if it's out of it..

        roll_real_abils uses the equivilent of 4d6, take the best 3 and
that's each stat... that gives you from 3 to 18.. you might want to check
that as well...
