Bug or feature?

I just had yet-another promising character die in the current Sil competition, but there's a bug that contributed to it, and want to know what the expected behavior is supposed to be:

My character got trapped in a corridor between several Gwathrauko, and tried to flee by tunneling through the wall. I wasn't blind, but I couldn't see anything through the darkness. I didn't know if this would work, but the first time I hit the wall I got the message "You break through the granite." so it seemed to work. I tried it again (to clear the rubble that would be left behind by breaking the granite), and got the message "You hit something hard" and it didn't clear the rubble.

So my question: is it that the successfully breaking through the granite part is the bug? Or is that the failing to clear the subsequent rubble part is the bug?

Either behaviour seems okay (but obviously not what you had). I think it's a little better to let the player tunnel in the dark.

what is this "current sil competition" of which you speak?

Ah, clicked on the "competition" link above and saw it. What are the rules? One game or as many re-tries as you want?

Try as many times as you like (but no save scumming).

Agreed. I can accept either yes or no, but the current half-baked situation should be changed.
