Unknown Crashing...

I've got my code stable enough it'll run fine if I go away for the 
weekend, however there's one error I've yet to track down...

Here's what it says in the syslog:

Fri Aug 18 13:43:09 :: SYSERR: CHECKPOINT shutdown: tics not updated
(same thing in the errors file)

And then, here's what gdb tells me:
#1  0xa90a4 in raise ()
#2  0xa016f in abort ()
#3  0x4b2c in checkpointing () at comm.c:1271
1271        abort();
#4  0xbffffa20 in end ()
#5  0x9cdc2 in number (from=0, to=5) at utils.c:38
38        return ((my_rand() % (to - from + 1)) + from);
#6  0x63863 in do_track (ch=0x7e1c00, argument=0xbffffaf8 " orb", 
cmd=593, subcmd=0) at graph.c:195
195             dir = number(0, NUM_OF_DIRS - 1);
#7  0x6f98f in command_interpreter (ch=0x7e1c00, 
    argument=0xbffffaf4 "trac orb") at interpreter.c:276
276         ((*cmd_info[cmd].command_pointer) (ch, line, cmd, 
#8  0x2709 in game_loop (mother_desc=3) at comm.c:512
512               command_interpreter(d->character, comm); /* send it to 
interpreter */
#9  0x1890 in init_game (port=2447) at comm.c:224
224       game_loop(mother_desc);
#10 0x16b4 in main (argc=3, argv=0xbffffebc) at comm.c:181
181         init_game(port);

Just kinda clueless on where it's bombing... 

"We had it tough ... I had to get up at 9 o'clock at night, half an
hour before I went to bed, eat a lump of dry poison, work 29 hours down
mill, and when we came home our Dad would kill us, and dance about on
our grave singing Haleleuia ..."
