ack, how many ppl have imped this portal shit? grumble...
anyway, i suggest using checkpoints to make sure the timer variable is
not being reset. stickem in the related functions in limits an spec_procs.
we had portal pimped in our 2.2 version and the timer worked fine then,
however we had made alot of alterations and i cant be sure timer code was
stock. *shrug* corpses and food decay fine, right? so perhaps 2.2 is limited
to those items? i dont no how this is done in 2.2 :(
