This sounds like an issue with either ID's, or with that hideous OLC bug
that doesn't properly reset the room when it has been edited.  You can
check the archives for issues with DG Script ID's and also I think you can
find notes about crashes in OLC when there are other characters in the
room.  If it is OLC, and you can't find the solution, email me personally,
I think I have that fix somewhere here...

Kind regards,
