Summary0000696: Placement of figure name declarations in source can produce spurious errors
DescriptionIf the declaration of a figure is placed between a "defined in table..." declaration and the table itself, Inform will not register the figure name before reading the table.

This can result in compiler errors or silent namespace debacles, such as both an object and a figure with the same name (see the forum thread this report is derived from: [^]).
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
There is a room.

A zod is a kind of thing. A zod has a figure name called the associated image. Some zods are defined 
by the Table of Zod Images.

Figure of Zod is the file "Zod.png".

Table of Zod Images
zod	associated image
zod_1	Figure of Zod
TagsNo tags attached.
Effect(serious) Compiler rejects valid code

It's true that when things are defined by table, this occurs at the position in the source given by the declaring sentence, not the table. But in fact the source text provided here works fine now; I think the underlying problem was some kind of bug to do with constants in table entries, which is now fixed.
