I didn't program this. The person who did, I believe, found after
experimentation that he could change the value for 'player' perminantly
if all the other server variables were first altered. I'm not sure
though, I'll have to ask him about it.

Thanks, I just checked and this is the difference between the instances
where 'player' was changed perminantly and where it wasn't. It was
subtle enough to totally confuse me, though.
