This was changed a little while ago (3.0.? or thereabouts) so that lights are effective unequipped during daylight in the town

This was done because otherwise when you appeared in the town you had to remember to unequip your torch or lantern to stop it wasting fuel, and then remember to equip it again when you entered the dungeon. It just helped to streamline things

It obviously extends to permanent light sources as well. But that seems reasonable?
