Checked this out.  The file client.h defines damage as sint8, but the
living.h file for the server says sint16.  Don't ask me what negative
damage means - do I lose hp if I hit a monster? :-).

Maybe the client and server should have the same include file? - no need
for duplication of info, and (minor, but irritating) problems like these
will go away.

Anyway, changing the sint8 to sint16 worked fine for me.
