Well, that's a little more information, but without a crystal ball, it makes it
difficult to determine what's happening. Do you know how to analyze a core
dump to gather more information? If not, please check out the FAQ for this
mailing list for information on using gdb to do so. The information a simple
backtrace on a core dump can provide will save everyone time and

In your hit point percentage trigger, are you using a wait statement? If
so, and if your mobile is dying before the completion of that wait, and
assuming the event system DG is using is the basic event system I
included in the original package, your "wait"ing trigger could be returning
to a dead mob; definitely a problem. I believe I posted rudimentart details
on a fix for this; check the list archives (both here and for the dg scripts
list - I forget which list it was posted to). Patch leve 8, in beta by the end
of this week, will also have a fix for that problem.
