I actually have a different tactic -if I detect him, I lure him into a corridor, and even after he confusion locks me, I keep randomly attacking. Assuming I'm not terrible at melee, I get enough random hits on him to eventually kill him, and the damage he (and the software bug on the other side of me) do is low enough that sometimes I don't even need to heal, or at most quaff one csw potion.
