Summary0000932: "Here is a nothing" causes internal error
DescriptionApparently Inform doesn't like it when you try to put "a nothing" "here". Obviously, this is illegal, but maybe we should have a better problem message for it.
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
There is room.

Here is a nothing.
Additional Information  >--> An internal error has occurred: failed to set a free variable. The
    current sentence is 'Here is a nothing' (source text, line 3); the error
    was detected at line 274 of "Chapter 14/Assert Propositions.w". This should
    never happen, and I am now halting in abject failure.
TagsNo tags attached.
Effect(critical) Compiler reports internal error

See 0000947 for a more realistic test case.

Fixed, and various problem messages for similar ploys ("Nothing is in the box." improved; they were a bit generic and unhelpful before.
