Arrows slaying dragons naturally?

So on my 3.1 warrior, I just found the Long Bow of Bard and did an "I"nspect on my generic arrow to see my damage, and it says "inflicting an average damage of 322.5 against Dragons, and 107.5 against normal creatures." In the bow description it doesn't mention a slay dragon effect.

Have arrows always done more damage to dragons and I never knew it? Or is this a bug? Or is the bow more uber than it tells you?

The bow has slay dragon, which transfers to the arrows you shoot with it. This probably needs to be expressed better.

May I ask you on what dungeon level did you find the Long Bow of Bard?

Something related to this is a Ring of Acid that I found. Whenever I hit an enemy it says that I "corrode" them, so I assume that the weapon gets acid branding? Neither the ring nor the weapon mentions this though. If it really is the case that you get extra damage from the ring (and other similar rings) it would be nice to see that in the damage calculation for the weapon.

To be precise, it needs to be told to the player that the bow has slay dragon. On the dump, at least, http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=8448 it doesn't show up at all.
For that matter, the slays on the Westernesse main gauche don't show up either, except by the fact that the weapon does more damage against them.

The weapon looks fine, I don't think it needs to mention twice that it does extra damage to orcs. Should be just one of the new interface changes
