Find the place where the actual comparision is done and add a line right
above it which logs the two values compared, then look at the result.

Another way is to run the MUD inside GDB.  Set a breakpoint at the function
that does the comparisons and step through while printing or displaying
ceartain values to see what it's not doing right.
