You mean it's been there all along but hadn't been reported?

A few weeks ago I posted...

...then perhaps negative mana was in effect unachievable prior to 3.4/3.4.1?

(The above post was the same one in which I said oil/lanterns were thin on the ground; Dave II always tops up when in town and he's noticed that on his last two visits to the surface he was down to 3k and 5k remaining fuel. The ability to refuel in-dungeon is definitely no longer a given.)
