Summary0000883: Problem message for translations that are not quoted I6 identifiers leaves out some source text
DescriptionWhile checking that entries in Global_Vars can't be given extra I7 aliases, I came across the problem message

- - - -
Problem. You wrote 'Bar translates into I6 as (- Global_Vars-->0 ' : but Inform 7 constructions can only translate into quoted I6 identifiers, which must be strings of 1 to 31 characters drawn from 1, 2, ..., 9, a or A, b or B, ..., z or Z, or underscore '_', except that the first character is not allowed to be a digit.
- - - -

in which the quoted source text shortchanges the author one smiley cyclops.
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
There is a room.
Foo is a number that varies.
Bar is a number that varies.
Bar translates into I6 as (- Global_Vars-->0 -).
TagsNo tags attached.
Effect(cosmetic) Error message is badly worded
