Default Fix for leveling past level 86

there is currently a bug where if your character is past level 86 and gains exp then it will automaticly be reset back to 86. reason for this is a buffer overflow on the pull of character data from your database to the zone client
this little patch is ment to fix this

with a lot of testing i was able to reach the 112 without having buffer overflow issues, currently live is at 110 so, i see no real need to raise level beyond that

this is only seeable by gms when they gain experience as a gm... so its not really needed unless your having issues and want to debug things

This is mostly a sanity check, if the add_exp float for some reason does buffer over flow, lets not allow it to buffer overflow the character and send it back to level 1

this is the currently broken pull from the database that is normally only converted to a int, we are changing it to be converted into a long long, it being a long long will allow it to be converted to a UINT32 without any data loss
