   For this one you might try looking in the bugfixes directory at i believe there is a fix for that in there

somewhere in the medit_parse function you'll find something similar to this:

  case MEDIT_L_DESC:
    if (GET_LDESC(OLC_MOB(d)))
    if (arg && *arg) {
      strcpy(buf, arg);
      strcat(buf, "\r\n");
      GET_LDESC(OLC_MOB(d)) = str_dup(buf);
    } else
      GET_LDESC(OLC_MOB(d)) = str_dup("undefined");


if you'll notice the strcat(buf, "\r\n"); line of code, that's what's making
it display it one line below the ldesc. to fix this you might try leaving
that out, and wherever you tell it to put the (Gold Aura) in, put the \r\n
after that, along with wherever else the ldesc is used.
