Identical yet unknown spellbooks generated in the same floor aren't auto-identified
If the player finds two identical spellbooks he hasn't identified yet, and read-identifies one of them, the other one won't be auto-identified.

Problem
If the player finds two identical spellbooks he hasn't identified yet, and read-identifies one of them, the other one won't auto-ID when he finds it. This is unlikely to happen in the first place, but still possible with the most common books.

For example: I find a "parchment tome" on the floor, read it, and it teaches me the Darkness spell. When I find another spellbook of Darkness on the same dungeon, it's still a parchment tome (100s), even though I have it in my identified items list. When I pick it up or walk over it again, the game says "You pick up the spellbook of Darkness."/"A spellbook of Darkness (100s) is lying here." and it's identified.

How to reproduce it
See above. You need some luck, as two identical spellbooks for a spell you don't yet know must be generated in the same floor.

Notes
This is a very minor issue, considering the conditions required to trigger it and its "effect" on gameplay.

Weird, the code seems to now allow for such a case as - after identifying an item - all other items on the same dungeon level are checked once more for the knowledge status.

Setting this issue to "can't reproduce". Please reopen if the problem is still present.

I reproduced this.
I went into the small cave and apparently generated a spellbook of Knock (thin tome). I didn't know it at the time.

I left the small cave and much later came back to it, now knowing that this was a spellbook of Knock.

I walked over it and it said it was a thin tome, although it got ID'd as knock as part of the pickup.

Maybe it only happens if you ID it elsewhere but it has already been generated?

I've reproduced this - I got a copy of the sooty tome, read-identified it as the spellbook it was at the time, and then had another sooty tome drop from a monster kill later on the same level.
