Okay, to rephrase your message:
You're looking at an unconnected player, and you check their
connected_seconds().  Why does it return E_INVARG?  They're not connected!
Connected_seconds() starts when they get the '*** Connected ***' message.
Because of this, on a lagged MOO, people may have a higher idle time than
connection time.
