Just a reminder that in release 29 there is still the problem whereby if you take an object from on or in another object you sometimes get the response "You take the %object% from the shelf. You can't take the shelf."

This seems to happen only when the object with the surface is created after (ie is lower down the object list) than the object being taken.
