Dual wield and disarm problem

I am having some problems with my dual wield skill. Firstly, at the moment
the player can only dual wield an weapon if it has the dwield bit set on it.
Unfortunately this mean that they can wield a weapon which requires 2 hands,
and then dual wield a single handed weapon.

I want to add a check into the dual wield code to make sure that the weapon
they are wielding has the dwield bit set to it (i.e making it require only 1
hand to wield). And if it hasn't (i.e it requires two hands to hold) Then it
stops them dwielding the weapon.

Here is the code I came up with for the check, if anyone has any ideas.

   send_to_char("You are already wielding a weapon which requires both
hands!\r\n", ch);
   perform_remove(ch, WEAR_DWIELD);

The problem with this code is that wield works fine but no matter which
weapon type you wield two-handed or single handed, it always throws up the
catch above. It is obviously a problem with the logic statement but i am not
sure quite what.

Also I have included a disarm skill, and if you use the disarm skill whilst
dwielding your opponant doesn't get an attack in any round.
Is this likely to be a problem with the disarm skill of the dual wield
skill, and any ideas what it may be.
