[DG Scripts] bug in alias variable

From: Andy Hubbard (hub@LEICESTER.AC.UK)

Here's a quick fix for the alias variable.  Due to the way the
GET_NAME macro works it will return the short description for
mobiles.  Not good for mkill %actor.alias% if actor is a mob! All
you'll probably see will be,

SCRIPT ERR: Mob (a tabby cat, VNum 1014): mkill: victim (a) not found

as in this case the first thing in the mobs short description is an
'a' :(

change in dg_scripts.c this bit after the "name" field ..

      else if (!str_cmp(field, "alias"))
    strcpy(str, (c)->player.name);

now aliases will be returned for mobs and players and you can get ya
mobiles scrappin like cats and dogs !!
