I'm going to have to say try rebooting the mud.  The index is not updated
unless the mud reboots since just changing the name doesn't update the
index.  The character creation procedures do update the index dynamically,
therefore if it is imperative that name changes take place without a reboot
steal the code from there..

However removing the entry from the pfile if that is the case will have to
be done manually.  Basically, just set the delete flag on the player.

Finally life!
