Yeah, I figured as much.  If memory serves me correctly the original dig
and copyto have the same problem (memory leak if you use them on
existing rooms and/or exits).  Of a moe serious note than the memory
leak even is the lack of any checks to make sure that the builder is
only using the command in his assigned zone.  I could destroy a MUDs
world by presenting myself as a builder and once given permissions all I
have to do is copyto the description on one room to every other room in
the mud, then goto each room and dig all the exits to -1 (a script in
zMUD could do this very easily for me).

I learned this the hard way before fixing the problem in my own MUD.
