Frozen MUDs imply infinite loops so that's my guess based on what special()
does. It could be any number of places or even something unrelated to what
you're trying to do.  Not something I can remotely debug.

It will help to figure out if the line GDB stops on corresponds to the loop
through the player's inventory or the room's contents.  The line you wrote:
"if (GET_OBJ_SPEC(i) != NULL)" shows up in both so I can't say which based
on the e-mail.

To catch trivial loops:

  for (i = ch->carrying; i; i = i->next_content) {
    if (i == i->next_content || i->next_content &&
        i == i->next_content->next_content)
    if (GET_OBJ_SPEC(i) != NULL)
