It did how much damage?

On the last LOW HITPOINT WARNING, I had 41hps left, or so the display told me. I hit space for -more-, then I was dead.
Black knight does 5d5 damage per hit.

Did the display not update correctly? (char shows -1 hps at file dump)

I patched my game to display my HP and the damage in the log for this reason

Bugs related to the display not updating are in fact fairly common. So it could be this.
Also I thought low-hitpoint warning comes only once per turn.

I think my last char died because of this. Hellhounds breathing, I thought that I have plenty of HP left, then suddenly R.I.P.

The point is that black knights should only be able to deal 25 damage per blow. He had (as far as he knew) had 41 HP before the final blow, took the final blow, and died.

That strikes me as distinctly "non-legit" and an indication of display issues.

He got hit 5 times between turns. It wouldn't be that much of a bug if the hp display is only refreshed each turn, rather than after each hit, since you will see the right value when you decide what to do.

I thought that was exactly how it did work ...

It'd be nice if it refreshed when you hit a -more- prompt, to help the player gauge how much damage they're taking from individual sources. Not critical though.
