'd'rop command now returns to inventory after dropping

Not sure if this is intentional behaviour or not, but can't come up with a reason why this would be beneficial, so posting it as a bug.

When you drop stuff with the single item 'd'rop command, you return to the inventory window once you've done your drop. It's quite nasty UI-wise since quite often after dropping you are moving in some direction. For example, south-west, which means pressing '1'... It's really not nice to trigger a "drop all", especially if you are in a place of item destruction, or in a shop.

As we have the complex drop commands anyway, I don't think 'd' should return to the inventory for more drops.

Let's hear more opinions. For me it felt much better.

For me, if I'm using the basic drop command, I typically just want to drop 1 thing and be done with it (usually when I accidentally pick up an item I didn't want). If I'm dropping multiple things like in a store or on an altar, etc. I use the '1' or '9' hotkeys for drop all/drop multi.

But if I didn't know how to use the advanced commands, I can see it being better how it is right now.

Yeah, if you are using single-drop as your primary drop command, the current behavior makes it much, much better. I've rebound multiple-drop and pick to "d" and "," because I really like them, but I imagine new players are not going to do this.

One solution to this would also be to implement a "plain single drop" command and make the keybinding for that as complex as you want. The veterans could then swap the keybinding themself.
That's what I did with the new approach to the tool slot 'u'se command :)

I have added a configuration variable 'Repetitive_Drop' (which by default in the current implementation is 'true' as I think that this is better for new players). If you set it to 'false' drop will stop after dropping one item (as requested above).
