I would delete the lines. I don't think they are actually used after
this point, but I didn't do an exhaustive check. Create_island() resets
them each time, and when you leave at this point you aren't looping
back to place_island().

Since they are (badly named) globals anybody could access them, but it
isn't really likely.
