Can we have some context (eg a couple of lines to either side of it,
means we have a vague chance of knowing what it's doing, the above line
isn't in stock circlemud code, so you've added it with some snippet.)  A
stack trace would be very helpful.

Well it's telling you something is being passed into get_filename that
shouldn't be.

Can I politly request you only send an email with a problem once,
sending it twice (about 14hrs apart) makes no difference to the speed of
the response (and it increases the noise on the list), this is the first
time for a couple of days I've had to catch up on email.
