What happens if a hit() kills the person they're fighting while the
attacker still has attacks left?  You want:

  for (i = 0; FIGHTING(ch) && i < att; i++)
    hit(ch, FIGHTING(ch), dam, TYPE_UNDEFINED);

I don't think you want to have them hit and then kick the person every
round; if you don't, consider a different approach.  Either way, you
should ensure FIGHTING(ch) is not NULL (i.e., the victim hasn't been
killed), yet.

Not unless you've changed it.

I believe your problem amounts to you killing the victim earlier and
failing to check if they've died.  This has been brought up several times
in the past: the list archive is your friend.
