Well, I guess you're right in some wierd way :) But if you go and examine 
the limits.c file, you will find some routines that handle the XP gain.
If you have an unmodifyed version of CircleMUD 3.0 bpl8+ (I never had 
anything earlier than bpl8 :P), you should be able to 'understand' that 
the character will be automatically advanced through the levels untill 
lvl immort, and if scoring enough XP I beleave it goes all the way to lvl 

What you 'should' do, is to put a check in the routine, and simply NOT 
advance the char if the char is LVL_IMMORT-1 or higher... 
Alternately, you might allso want to 'stop adding xp' to the character... 
which you could allso do arround the same procedure... if I'm not 
mistaken, the procedure you should modify is called : gain_exp()
I might not remember correctly, and I don't have the source handy, so 
maybe someone else could correct this message if I'm wrong.
