Short sword of sloth does not affect speed

I didn't even know this is may exist, but I got two of them (and nothing else) from one of the new boss monsters (Dolly, master swordsman).
My speed without wielding one was 101, wielding one it also wasl 101 and while wielding both it still was 101. Also energy cost was unaffected.

Edit: attached save file (for p14).

I think the real bug here is that those two swords were generated :p "Of sloth" is an armor suffix!

I've no idea what the real bug is, but definitely there's a bug somewhere... :D
That suffix could be some (hidden) added feature.

Or maybe it's flavor. Did the boss' description make any mentions about it?

Hmm, I got the same swords from that boss. The "of sloth" swords. Thought I just got unlucky.

This is what blessed scroll of great identify says about them:
--------------- heap of 2 uncursed short swords of sloth (+0, 1d6)-------------

When used in melee combat it grants a +0 bonus to hit and causes 1d6 points of
damage. It slows you down immensely (-20 to speed, already figured in).
When used as a missile it grants a -4 bonus to hit and causes 1d3 points of

Fixed. The weapon suffix was used instead of prefix when the short swords were created.
