SIGVTALRM signal ...

From: KLA (

Hi guys ...

I got a problem with my MUD (based on circlebpl8+LostLand)
somehow, the MUD will terminate itself around 3-5 minutes

I tried to use gdb and
it only said that the program terminated with SIGVTALRM signal ...

I looked in the comm.c, before 'my_signal(SIGVTALRM, checkpointing)'
it said 

"set up the  deadlock-protection so that the MUD aborts itself if it
gets caught in an infinite loop for more  than 3 minutes"

can anyone gimme a hint on how to track down which loop that triggered
the SIGVTALRM signal that terminated the program ??
