Behavior upon creating new character with deleted name:

  Creates new entry at top of table for new person, leaving the old name in
  the table.

  Overwrites the old position in the table and assigns a new idnum.

get_id_by_name() returns the first name in the player table. Mail and
houses use get_id_by_name(). Therefore, the new character will never get
mail or houses in bpl14 or previous.

Should work fine in bpl15.
