This one took a while to track down.

Create a container called 'cabinet'. Attempting to put anything into the cabinet will always fail the first restriction (object must exist). Mispell 'cabinet' to 'cabanit' and things can now be put inside the container.

It appears that a command like put %object1% in %object2% is screwed up if object2 has 'in' in its name. Is the parser seeing 'put box in cabinet' as 'put box in cab in en'?

Similarly a supporter called 'container' will also fail every attempt to put things on, because of the 'on' in container (put box on c on tainer).

Can someone confirm this behaviour before I put this on the bug list.
