[3.5.1] display bug?

http://angband.oook.cz/screen-show.php?id=3161

I arrived into this room on the level via the stairs, at first the ring was not visible, then I heard a door burst open, then the ring becomes visible, then the vortex becomes visible. Perhaps the ring's a mimic (I'm not going to hang around to find out since I'm low on HP)?

edit: decided to hang around, survived, it was a normal ring object, not a mimic.

I think it could legitimately happen that way - fire vortices emit light, IIRC, which means that although the ring was outside your lit range, the vortex illuminated it for you shortly before coming into view itself.

Doh, didn't think about that. You're right, I'm sure that's what happened.
