Infravision is different than the other starting abilities. Unlike resistance items, infravision items stack with intrinsic infravision, so the rune is not redundant for characters with infravision....

You don't really need to fully ID the One Ring. Unlike those rings of digging and open wounds, you'll never find another, and it can't possibly be confused for anything else.

Not trying to run when standing in dangerous terrain seems to be practical advice to me. It's not really analogous to the doctor case. But it also turns out not to be relevant to the OP's problem, so...

How's your perception score? The only scenario I can think of that matches this is that if you don't know that the trap is there, and so you blunder into it without attempting to disarm.

Is it the case that you're standing right next to the trap and then pressing shift-direction towards it, or rather that you run towards the trap from farther away and still trigger it? The latter...

Another bug in item identification: Found a cursed ring of digging, having not previously learned that flavor. I cast an identify rune on it at first, and learned that it had a paralysis curse. Wore...

Most likely, that {??} rune is an unknown curse. I generally like to stash these items at home until I have a surplus of identify rune scrolls around. In the early game, home space isn't worth...

Actually, if the idea is to not have the player start a level in a death trap, we don't really want to be modifying stair placement at all. A better solution would be to base things on the code that...

The change from ball-spell breaths to cone breaths has made drolems and AMHDs a lot more manageable. It's still not worthwhile to actually fight them, but you now have a reasonable shot at finding...

Simply encountering a vault at 100 feet is nuts. The artifact seems reasonable for a ring of power, but even in vaults you shouldn't be finding those until DL 80 or so.

Granted, you do...

I'm pretty sure curing is now identified on use even if you're healthy. The only ones that are tricky to identify are disarming and door destruction (and digging, but the OP ruled that out).
