[3.4 RC] Minor typo

... and really difficult to reproduce too!

- use detect treasure on a level with a mimic (potion, scroll...)
- stand out of LOS and use something that can harm the mimic (wand with ball effect, spell...) so it gets "revealed"
- you get the message "The an unknown item was really a monster!"

Having text that has two articles referring to the same object isn't flavor; it's just bad grammar.

Whether or not the message should be shown at all is a separate question. There's no question that the message, as implemented, is not proper English.

But then I suppose you wouldn't be the one to judge that, would you?

The fix should be something simple like:

Code:
if (o_ptr->marked == MARK_AWARE)
{
  if (prefix)
    return strnfmt(buf, max, "an unknown item");
  return strnfmt(buf, max, "unknown item");
}
in object_desc().
