Summary0001049: The phrase "X is a C listed in T" is inexplicably sexist
DescriptionYou can add as many men and women as you like to this table; Inform will consider the men to be "listed in" the table, but not the women!

Inform must be inferring a wrong type for the column. If a woman is listed first, Inform instead only recognizes women. If I add `A toaster is in Ohio.` and change the first row of the table to `toaster`, it recognizes both women and men.

Explicitly changing the column heading to `voter (object)` also works.
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
Ohio is a room. Jane is a woman. Jon is a man.

Table 1

When play begins:
	if Jane is a voter listed in Table 1:
		say "PASS";
		say "FAIL";
TagsNo tags attached.
Effect(serious/mild) Game compiles but misbehaves

Confirmed, noting 0000444:0000870, and with a suspicion that the fix described in 0000444:0001422 has already taken care of the problem.

Fixed. (It was actually a duplicate of 0000448, not 0000444.)
