Summary0001168: Incorrect touchability results for specific circumstance of nested supporters/containers
DescriptionIf an object is on a supporter inside a closed transparent container that is part of a backdrop, Inform incorrectly calculates that the object is touchable. If the object is merely inside the container and not on the supporter, touchability is correctly reported.
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
The Lab is a room. The shelf system is a backdrop in the Lab.

The clear case is a transparent closed fixed in place container. It is part of the shelf system.

The stand is a supporter in the clear case.

On the stand is a chocolate. The chocolate is edible.

Test me with "eat chocolate".
Additional InformationIt might seem you could do a temporary fix for this by adding a reaching inside rule for the particular case in question, but adding the following rule does not improve matters:

A rule for reaching inside the clear case:
say "The case is permanently closed.";
deny access.

However, applying the rule to the supporter in question succeeds. Thus the recommended hack would be of the form

A rule for reaching inside the stand:
say "The case is permanently closed.";
deny access.

Effect(serious/mild) Game compiles but misbehaves
