 you to the custom win screen instead of providing a warning.

 free tile on the map.

     lots of problems.

 ahead of them would not fire their arrows. (Custom levels only.)
- Fixed bug: shooting kissing parlor damsels off-screen wouldn't anger
 the shopkeeper.
- Fixed bug: the compass marker shouldn't disappear when messages are also on
 the screen.
- Fixed bug: as Damsel or Tunnel Man, if you are crawling and facing right
 and then press run, you'd do a super wiggle.
- Fixed bug: trees would appear in front of shop signs.
- Fixed bug: items in lava would float in mid-air once the lava is drained.
- Fixed bug: items would sometimes show up in unbreakable walls.

 blood on spikes.'
? Fixed bug: in the Black Market, Mantraps could spawn in areas where they
 could eat shopkeepers.
