I can't seem to reproduce the bug :S I let a char die, typed /allow <name> got access to the body (looted stuff). Did you get a message "Area 1: Allowed access to 0 corpses" (for areas 1-38)? Or nothing at all? Let me know.
I cannot reproduce this bug (also tested in Exkordon). The /allow mechanism worked for me (also with two corpses). Did it show any text when you touched the body? On what character did you die (and when)? I will look it up in the logs to get more info.
I found it in the logs, you died twice in exk spiders.. Unfortunately, the logs don't show any signs of an error. I have tested dying/allowing so many times I even checked if I could loot the body on Rhaegar after allowing.. It all works :S Was there anything particular happening at the moment of your death or at the moment you used the /allow command? Like were you poisoned?
Did you try the /allow command a few times (after it didnt work)? Or just once?
