Summary0000791: "Every thing unlocks itself" gives a weird error message
DescriptionThis error message:
  >--> You wrote 'Every thing unlocks itself' (source text, line 5), but in
    another sentence 'Every thing unlocks itself' (source text, line 5): but
    this looks like a contradiction, because the same property seems to be
    being set in each of these sentences, but with a different outcome.

What does it mean by a different outcome? I'm guessing that Inform thinks this will clash with the one-to-various structure of lock-fitting (although in reality, it won't as far as I can tell), but maybe there's some other problem.

This might be a "Compiler rejects valid code" issue, but I'm not sure if this is or ought to be valid code.
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce

There is room.

Every thing unlocks itself.
Additional InformationHaving individual things which unlock themselves is also broken (but of limited usefulness in any case); I will report a separate bug for that soon.
TagsNo tags attached.
Effect(cosmetic) Error message is badly worded

Check unlocking something with something:
     if the second noun is the noun:
         now the noun is open.

Confirming this one for the error message wording.

There is now a much clearer problem message for this.
