Summary0000807: starting inside a closed container condemns the player to eternal darkness
DescriptionEven after exiting, every turn the room will display as "Darkness." Using showme on the room reveals that it is indeed lighted.
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
The house is a room.

The box is an enterable, opaque container.  It is closed and openable.  It is in the house.
Mary is a woman.  She is in the box.  The player is Mary.

Test me with "open box/exit/z/l/sing/l".
Additional InformationIf we replace "She is in the box" with "When play begins: Now Mary is in the box" then this bug does not happen.

See; [^] a solution to this bug has been posted in that thread by SJ_43, involving the I6 Position Player In Model World Rule.

This is probably related to 806, though distinct. (That bug causes a spurious report of darkness to print before the room description, on exiting a closed container. This one causes the room emerged into to register as dark. Put them together and you get two spurious reports of darkness on exiting the box.)
TagsNo tags attached.

Whoops, you need to attach "open box" to the beginning of the test script.

I think it's when there's a rule for auto-opening the box that you get two darkness reports, one from 806 and one from this bug.

I've accepted SJ_43's fix, for which I'm grateful.
