Oops!, there should definitely be a return of some description at the 
bottom of that function :)

I suppose it should really be "return TRUE;" rather than "return 1;"

You will only be saved if there is a safe move available that you could
have made, if all moves would result in you getting killed, then you are
allowed to proceed. Teleporting away is not considered a 'move', which
means you still have to stay alert.

If you are getting killed even when there is a safe move available, then
there must be a bug somewhere.
