I tried this.  It crashes mine on if(GET_NAME(dt->character) &&
!str_cmp(GET_NAME(dt->character), newname)).  But simply doing a check like:

for (dt = descriptor_list; dt; dt = dt->next)
      return FALSE;

does top them from making characters with the same name (same cases that
is).  Please don't think I'm trying to be a smart ass with this, I'm just
trying to understand it better.
