        I've seen this happen many times actually.  The problem usually
comes in the first or second time someone writes a function which performs
object-within-object movement.  Like mixing up the uses of 'contents' and
'next', etc.  Sometimes extracting a created object causes this as well
(created by - for example - a hunt skill, or the body pieces snippet,

        Same thing as always - triple check any code you've added lately,
especially if it deals with objects. (duh).
