Since it doesn't make it inside of save_char(), the GET_LOADROOM(ch) bit
is crashing it.  In the gdb session with the core file try:

  print ch->player_specials

Without knowing the specifics of the patch you've used, I can only guess
that ch->player_specials is never being allocated (is NULL [0x0]) or is
otherwise pointing off into never-never land.  Try comparing your code
with how loading a character is done in other places (that work correctly,
I presume) like do_stat() or do_set().
