Something seems to have changed with monster behaviour - I've twice had them stop pursuing and wander off the second I stepped out of line of sight leaving a corridor. So you can effectively be in situation like this:

Code:
#..........#
#..........#
#####@######
    #o#     
    #o#       
    #o#
Take one small step out of line of sight...

Code:
#..........#
#.....@....#
#####.######
    #.#     
    #.#       
    #.#
And they'll all wander off back down the corridor and leave you in peace to heal up for as long as you like. Which means you can pretty much sit there infinitely shooting with ranged weapons and then stepping round the corner to wait for them to go away once they get too close.

ETA: ooh, and I just shot seven monsters at once with the same iron shot. If you use 'f' and just pick a direction or manually target a monster at the back of a pack rather than using 'h' to target the nearest, your ammo will just keep going straight through, hitting every monster in its path. Which is tremendously fun, but probably not actually desired behaviour...
