Bug: create_new_race is not properly allocating the where_name list
Danger: Medium - Memory error
Found by: Samson
Fixed by: Samson

---

act_wiz.c, create_new_race

Locate:

   for( i = 0; i < MAX_WHERE_NAME; i++ )
      race_table[index]->where_name[i] = where_name[i];


Replace with:

   for( i = 0; i < MAX_WHERE_NAME; i++ )
      race_table[index]->where_name[i] = str_dup( where_name[i] );


When a race entry is removed later for whatever reason, the wear_name tables will attempt to DISPOSE the list. However if this race was created online and the MUD has not yet rebooted, there will be a memory leak created.

Also note - if you're using the FUSS package, the "index" above will complain, you should change it to "rcindex".

[Edited for typo spotted by GatewaySysop - thanks]
