The code level and patch level would be good to know here.  A couple patch
levels back in 3.0, Jeremy fixed a bug in 'set <person> title <new title>'
which allowed a character to have a title longer than the MAX_TITLE_LENGTH.
This would overwrite other parts of the char_data structure when the
character was saved, so impossible levels could be achieved.  Check the
current src/CHANGES file for when this fix was made.
