No shit, that's why I pointed out that the db editor should be able to set a
wizard bit! I'm of the opinion that those are the only two things you should
be messing with the db file with other than through the server.

This is not necessary. co #2 <password> will work just fine. The wizard
then can, once logging in, can then @untoad 'emself. How else do people
login while the $player_db is being reloaded? Of course, if you don't know
the archwizard's object number.... :)
