It's not a stock bug.  Please either download a stock version of CircleMUD
or view the complete distribution online at

before reporting something as a bug in the stock code.

There's no hit(ch, vict, TYPE_UNDEFINED); call in do_backstab(). There are
two approxiamate matches:

    act("$n notices $N lunging at $m!", FALSE, vict, 0, ch, TO_NOTVICT);
    hit(vict, ch, TYPE_UNDEFINED);

when attacking an aware mob and,

    hit(ch, vict, SKILL_BACKSTAB);

when you hit.  No damage is ever dealt prior to these two, so neither
attacker nor victim can die before these two.  In other words: you've
messed something up.  Check your changes against the clean stock version
found at the URL above.  If you have no idea, then try sending us the
relevant do_backstab() code.

A debugger, BTW, is a much better resource than a list of 366 people.
