Humm.. I don't know really if it's native to the linux, I meant to say
that it was only seen on the Linux version, the Development platform
does not have this problem. But of course, since no or very few players
are online on the development, it's probably even harder to reproduce
the problem. Scavenging through old logs to find other similarities, I
found that the two occasions I could find happend around midnight. I'm
not saying that it's when it rolls over to a new day, but it seems
strange that the two seperate occasions does that.

Probably.. :) Now to figure out what it is, I'm usually pretty carefull
about not creating non-endable loops. And if it *is* possible to get the
code to go into an undening loop, I usually make a little counter that
breaks that particular loop with an error (Stopping the mud completely).
But since this is old code, BPL11 revamped, rebuild, hacked and
rehacked, I might have introduced an Unwanted loop without realizing it
somewhere. :7

Yes, of course, it's not a Linux 5.0, but a Redhat 5.0, what the heart
if full of and all that.. :)

Thanks for input, very helpful indeed. :)
