So therefore my tasks suspend whenever the hell the server feels like
it, not only leaving objects in an inconsistent state but also
allowing other tasks to smash any changes in state it makes before it
can use them.  I might consider programming in a language where you
had to explicitly lock resources, but I doubt many others will.

It has to be reliable, and so does the developer.  I won't adopt
any orphan servers.  ColdMUD almost died that way, and it's still on
life support.
