I'm guessing from that build_player_index(), that you're using some sort of
ASCII pfiles.  I'm going to further guess that when you login, it uses the
filename for the player to get the login information.


New character 'Joe' (pfile joe.player is created).
Joe logs in.
Joe's name is changed to Bob.
Now, inside joe.player, it says Name: Bob instead of Joe.
Next login, you type 'Bob' and it searches for a bob.player file.

So if you use individual files for each player, I think you need to make
sure the filename is changing.  If that's the case.
