Thrown potion idiosyncrasies
There's a variety of quirky behavior associated with thrown potions.

There's some odd behavior with certain thrown potions.

* Thrown potions of cure poison don't cure monsters' poisoning.
* Thrown blessed potions of blindness don't cure monsters' blindness.
* Thrown potions of stun recovery don't cure monsters' stunning.
* Thrown potions of balance give the message "The -foo- seems to calm down.", but the -foo- doesn't calm down.
* Throwing a cursed PoGA at monsters makes them "grow stronger" and increases their HP by 1 (could be intentional).
* Thrown potions of raw mana work just like potions of invisibility, including B/U/C status (could be intentional).
* Successfully throwing a PoEX at "ignore walls" monsters who are inside a wall will give an error message about putting a monster in a blocked place, and then deleting it.

How to reproduce it
See above.

If thrown potions of stun recovery worked correctly when thrown, the item would have a marginally positive use, should the PC want to cure monsters' stunning for whatever reason :)

The stun recovery thing could be intentional, but I agree that it could be a nice new feature.

The blessed potion of blindness thing could be intentional too, and to be honest I like the current behavior - I can count on the potion being a potential disabler without needing to worry about b/u/c status. If a way to cure monsters' blindness is considered a good thing to add to the game, maybe that effect could be added to the effects of the Heal spell (see 1949 for more of my thoughts about this).

Potions of cure poison work.

Blessed potions of blindness _now_ also work.

PoGA has been adjusted.

PoRawMana indeed are intentional as there is not good technical thing I could think of otherwise (without introducing new special cases).

The potion of exchange has been adjusted.

Thus this ticket will be marked as fixed.
