Bug: Pet data saved to pfile is assumed to be the last thing loaded.
Danger: Low - If additions are made that save after the pet data
Found by: Remcon
Fixed by: Remcon

save.c, load_char_obj

Locate:
         else if( !strcmp( word, "MOBILE" ) )
         {
            CHAR_DATA *mob;

            if( !( mob = fread_mobile( fp ) ) )
            {
               bug( "%s: Deleted mob saved on %s - skipping", __FUNCTION__, ch->name );
               break;
            }
            ch->pcdata->pet = mob;
            mob->master = ch;
            xSET_BIT( mob->affected_by, AFF_CHARM );
         }


Change to:
         else if( !strcmp( word, "MOBILE" ) )
         {
            CHAR_DATA *mob;

            if( ( mob = fread_mobile( fp ) ) )
            {
               ch->pcdata->pet = mob;
               mob->master = ch;
               xSET_BIT( mob->affected_by, AFF_CHARM );
            }
            else
              bug( "%s: Deleted mob saved on %s - skipping", __FUNCTION__, ch->name );
         }


The MOBILE section in a pfile is used to store pet data. It is usually the last set of things stored on a pfile before the END marker is reached. However, if new groupings of things to save in a pfile are saved after the pet data and a pet happens to later have it's index mob deleted, the pfile load would terminate prematurely and not load the new data.
