   Wish I would focus on the things that are telling me the problem,
instead of missing it completely.  Anyhow, just to recap, and throw out
the answer to my own question, here is what was doing it, and how I went
about fixing it.

   In spec_procs.c inside SPECIAL(guild_guard)  you will find these
lines.

   if (!IS_MOVE(cmd) || AFF_FLAGGED(guard, AFF_BLIND))
     return (FALSE);

   It should have been obvious that this is why flee worked for getting
past the guards.  So, to fix it, I went into interpreter.h and added the
following.

----

ACMD(do_move);
+ACMD(do_flee);

-#define IS_MOVE(cmdnum) (cmd_info[cmdnum].command_pointer == do_move)
+#define IS_MOVE(cmdnum) (cmd_info[cmdnum].command_pointer == do_move ||
\
+                         cmd_info[cmdnum].command_pointer == do_flee)

----

   If there is a better way of doing this let me know, I am always
looking to better my knowledge on coding, especially when it will help
with problems that previously eluded me.
