I use __try {} __except structure.

in comm.c, in function init_game() make this:

    log("SYSERR: Cought exception in game_loop()! Restarting.");

And re-run mud in batch-file. That's all you may need.
(Also you can make same thing with calling boot_db()if your mud
crashes when loading)

Sincerely yours,
