ASCII Pfiles

From: Dave Ely (

I'm running Circle30bpl17, Oasis2.0, Dgbpl7a:

I had imp'd the ascii2 pfiles and everything seemed to be going ok, but I have notice something
and I can't figure out why it's happening.

in my plr_index file I get this

1 banzai 34 0 950835883
0 banzai 0 0 0
2 iaznab 1 0 950836214
3 foobar 1 cdefgijlmnp 950836279

for some reason I get these 0 banzai 0 0 0 lines put in.. I just wiped all pfiles and created these
few test chars .

banzai created ok, and quit out.  Tried to create iaznab, and game crashed after login name.
reconnect create iaznab ok and then quit out
create foobar ok and quit out

the crash caused a core, and I back'd through it and get this:

 I realize something must be wrong in comm.c write_to_q, but I can't really tell

any help is greatly apprecitated
