It was I who fixed this bug, and even so I often wonder "where did all my items go?"

While I think this is the right behavior it might be nice to have a better way to explain to players what happened. I don't know if having a message generated would be annoying spam or useful, but it would be nice if it was a bit more obvious.

I think the place for this is in the squelch help: "WARNING: squelched items will still show up as red asterisks when detection magic is used, so don't be surprised if they 'disappear' when you walk into the room".
