Auto Swap Neutral does not actually swap, displaces

With the Auto_Swap_Neutral option, you actually wind up displacing most (all?) things (think pets) and not swapping with them. This is fairly annoying when attempting to walk down a corridor, for example: you have to keep pushing a monster down it/swap manually instead of breezing past.

It is supposed to work like the ':s' command when walking against a peaceful monster, I believe.

So, all that should happen is: the "Do you really want to attack/backstab *foo* [y/N]?" prompt should just be replaced with the ':s" command. In melee range obviously.

Maybe someone else can confirm, but I think with Sage it has always been the case that with pets and companions, you displace them.

What Sage does is auto-swap when in plain ADOM you would get a message of the "Do you really want to attack the *foo*?" sort. With pets, you don't get that message (you displace them instead) and Sage isn't supposed to change anything.

So if this is only for pets/companions/slaves, I see no bug. If this makes you displace goodwives and the like, then it sounds like a bug, yes.

Yes, it seems to be a bug.

Al-Khwarizmi: sorry, when I said "think pets", I meant displacing [non-hostile/not-really-neutral] monsters, like you would displace a pet, instead of swapping.

Oh, sorry. Probably you said it fine and the problem was my non-native English comprehension, I thought you were saying that the bug was with pets but I now see what you mean.
