I'll bet you're running Windows95 and you don't have the plrobjs
subdirectories.  There should be:


If those directories don't exist, create them.  The only way for
CircleMUD to save the inventory of a player is to write it out to
the player object files in those directories.  If those directories
don't exist, the objects aren't written out and they are all dropped
to the room instead.
