[BUG] stock mob spec procs

I think there is a small bug in stock Circle mobile spec procs, for example in
Look at this piece of code:

  /* if I didn't pick any of those, then just slam the guy I'm fighting */
  if (vict == NULL)
    vict = FIGHTING(ch);

This code is followed by spellcasting command.

But there is no check for victim and caster being in same room and
spellcasting functions also does not check this. So, situations like this one
are possible:

Mob hits you very hard.
goto Someone
You goto to someone.
[new room description]
You scream out in pain as Mob grabs you with burning hands!

The possible fix is:
    if (vict == NULL && world[ch->in_room] ==
      vict = FIGHTING(ch);
      return FALSE;

If there is a check for this and I missed it please let me know.
