Summary0000172: Odd problem message when trying to understand values matching a description
DescriptionThe example source results in this problem report:

Problem. You wrote '"undo"': but this is not a condition I am able to test, or at any rate not during play.
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
Home is a room.

Dialing is an action applying to one number. Understand "dial [a positive number]" as dialing.

Additional InformationNot sure if the source is valid or not, but I'm guessing not.
TagsNo tags attached.
Effect(cosmetic) Error message is badly worded

Interesting. Adding, for instance, this:

Table of Letters

causes the error message to change from mentioning ``undo'' to mentioning ``z.'' In general, Inform seems to cite the last appearance of an entry in a topic column. Topics columns also deal with understanding, though I can't guess what the interaction here is.
