Hmm.. I just woke up, ut lemme give this a shot :)

ok, well ch->in_room is the current room, now if I'm not mistaken you are 
trying to access the room 2 rooms east of this? ie o-o-o <- this room?

sh_int cur_room, count;

for (cur_room = ch->in_room, count = 0; cur_room && count < 2; 
     cur_room = EXIT(ch, door)->to_room, count++) {
  sprintf(buf, "%d", cur_room);  /* just for testing */
  log(buf);                      /* purposes :)      */

Not sure if this will work, like I said, I'm still wiping the crust out 
of my eyes (euk).
