It should definitely not end in a segfault, that is
right. Should be fixed with r2312, please test this.

Raoul is right in that activation of items without
actors to activate might later be an interesting
idea. After all, there is a difference between the
player and his or her actors, so just because the
actors are all dead, the player hopefully is not ...
and might therefore use the inventory as normal.
However, I don't see a use of this right now, we
might reactivate it later for specific, actor-inde-
pendend items, like remote controls or such.
