Yeah, kathoum summed up pretty much exactly my thoughts in his entire post - 'n' does the exact same thing as 'm1d0' if you've already targeted the monster once.
That's why it's especially dangerous I suppose - I mostly only use macros on the easy foes, around which I'm more careless anyway.

Indeed. Unangband seems unique in that it's the one *band that whenever I die, I consistently think to myself, "now I know not to do that again." It seems that I rarely die to difficult or unique monsters; it's always due to some other (seemingly insignificant) reason. Maybe that's the thing that has kept me hooked on Un for so long over other variants - every time I die, I learn something new. It seems like a lot of the dangers from vanilla (eg. paralyzation, big poison breaths, etc.) aren't nearly so bad in Un (or maybe I've just never gotten deep enough yet). I like it.
