copy_room_strings() is calling str_dup() with a NULL value (0x0) as
source.  str_dup() attempts to dereference its source arg and that will
always cause a seg fault when you attempt to dereference a NULL value.
I'm figuring that it gets freed and nulled out when you do the /c and
then the save attempts to str_dup the result of the edit which crashes
the MUD.  Try something like this at line 427 of genwld.c:

if (source)
  str_dup(dest, source);
  str_dup(dest, "undefined");
