If you don't want this, remove the configuration option.

There was a bugfix for this a while ago on the list. Look for the message
containing the patch, then use it.

This is probably the server looking for temporary maps from the previous
time you played, or something (this is the voice of ignorance speaking...),
but it doesn't seem to be a critical problem.

The only configuration error you seem to have is the option to save maps
across games; and this is only an error if you don't want it.

If you don't still have the message containing the fix for the key/door
bug, send me an offlist message, and I'll dig it out for you.
