Bug report: shopkeeper greetings
 
The shopkeeper greeting messages are now repeated after every transaction in the stores, which creates extra messages that have to be cleared. Threw off my rhythm enough that I accidentally bought a second set of body armor before I figured out what was going on.

So the shopkeepers have got smarter ;)

Can you describe steps to reproduce this? I don't get messages after every transaction, and when I do get a message, it isn't repeated/duplicated.

* Enter store.
* Bilbo says "Wands and staves sell for a good price even with 0 charges", ironically enough as I'm playing no-selling.
* You bought 2 Flasks of oil for 8 gold. You have 2 Flasks of oil (c). -more-
* "Wands and staves sell for a good price even with 0 charges"

The -more- after "You have 2 Flasks of oil" is new. I'm used to being able to hit the letter of the next item to buy and then hit 'b' to buy it, but now the item-selection is instead clearing the -more- so I end up buying what I just bought.

Actually, I don't think that this has to do with shopkeeper messages, since the same behavior is showing up at the home -- there's a pointless -more- with no message following afterwards whenever I grab something from the home.

Thank you - d_m has reproduced this. We don't know what the problem is yet, but we'll get there. Something is printing the last message when flushing. Not sure if it's menu weirdness or input weirdness.
