Summary0000278: Sometimes the player's holdall is referred to as "nothing."
DescriptionThe first time something is automatically inserted into the player's holdall during the taking of multiple objects, when the player's holdall was not held at the beginning of the turn, the library message for the "use player's holdall to avoid exceeding carrying capacity" rule refers to the holdall as "nothing."


>[1] take sack and bauble and bubble
ordinary sack: Taken.
bauble: Taken.
bubble: (putting the bauble into nothing to make room)
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
The Cargo Hold is a room.

The ordinary sack is a player's holdall in the Cargo Hold.

A bauble, a bubble, a kaboodle and a fish are in the Cargo Hold.

The carrying capacity of the player is 2.

test me with "take sack and bauble and bubble/take all"

NOTE_OBJECT_ACQUISITIONS_R, which determines the holdall to report, is only invoked as part of the turn sequence rules, so it has no chance to change the active holdall in the middle of a compound take.

An interesting one, this, but easily fixed. (Surprising it hasn't come up before - possibly player's holdalls are a little old-school for modern IF authors, and aren't used as much as they were.)
