Summary0000900: Inform gets the player global mixed up with player object.
DescriptionWhen run the if the player carries something refers to the player global variable (yourself), but the list of things carried by the player refers to the DVD player. Commenting the DVD player out produces the expected behavior.

An Interactive Fiction
Release 1 / Serial number 120404 / Inform 7 build 6G60 (I6/v6.32 lib 6/12N) SD

You can see a DVD player here.

You are carrying:
  a doo-dad

You are carrying nothing.

Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
Example is a room.  A DVD player is in example.

Yourself carries a doo-dad.  Every turn: if the player carries something, say "You are carrying 
[a list of things carried by the player]."
TagsNo tags attached.
Effect(serious/mild) Game compiles but misbehaves

Marking as a duplicate of 956 (even though that was filed later -- it has more detail and discussion).

Fixed. Strictly speaking it's not a duplicate of 0000956, despite appearances, but the fix ran on very similar lines.
