Summary0000293: Substitutions in list of indexed texts cause compiler problems.
DescriptionIncluding text substitutions in an indexed text seems to cause the resultant text to be permanently stored in that variable, which is very useful. However, when doing the same for an indexed text that appears as part of a list, it seems this does not happen, leading to an internal error. (Both the working "Indexed Text" and failing "List of Indexed Texts" versions appear in the source example.)
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
Config line is an indexed text variable. Config line is "monsters=25".

Stage is a room.

Section - List of Indexed Texts - this doesn't work

Key value pair is a list of indexed texts variable.

When play begins: set key value pair for config line.

To set key value pair for (thisline - an indexed text):
	if thisline matches the regular expression "(.*)=(.*)":
		now key value pair is {"[text matching subexpression 1]", "[text matching subexpression 
[Section - Indexed Text - this works

JustKey is an indexed text variable.

To set justkey for (thisline - an indexed text):
	if thisline matches the regular expression "(.*)=(.*)":
		now justKey is "[text matching subexpression 1]".
When play begins: set justkey for config line.]
TagsNo tags attached.
Effect(critical) Compiler reports internal error

This is a mighty strange one. A reduced version is:

- - - -
There is a room.
To foo (thisline - an indexed text):
showme {"[the player]"}.
- - - -

But the similar looking

- - - -
There is a room.
When play begins:
showme {"[the player]"}.
- - - -

works, as does

- - - -
There is a room.
To foo (thisline - an indexed text variable):
showme {"[the player]"}.
- - - -

though the latter fails when foo is reachable, as in

- - - -
There is a room.

X is an indexed text that varies.

When play begins:
foo X.

To foo (thisline - an indexed text variable):
showme {"[the player]"}.

A timing problem, now fixed.
