Bug in disable traps?

I'm only playing my second, serious character in v4 game, so this may be lack of understanding of how traps work, but it seems odd to me that a Rod of Disable Traps appears to remove traps, but then they re-appear ~30 turns later! Is that intentional?

Arguably it's faster then picking a lock if you're running away you just don't use it because phase door is a thing. The escape tools come in the wrong order for conventional escapes to be useful.

These are door/trap destruction in some variants. I still don't use them but that would possibly see some use in V up until the point you run out of inventory slots.

My memory is suggesting it was this way in V and they got nuked with the trap changes?

Do Rogues have to use "Books"?

I was going to play with changes to Necromancer first, but these were the names I came up with that I was going to edit, in time, all the others.

Necromancer
Codex of Dark Arts [title]

Blackguard
Shadow Handbook [title]

Druid
Treatise of Nature [title]

Ranger
Book of the Woodlands [title]

Mage
Tome of Sorcery [title]

Rogue
Manual of Tricks [title]

Priest
Holy Scriptures [title]

Paladin
Essays of Faith [title]


I found the books in the Class file. Some info in the realm file. But clearly I have no idea what I am doing. Help would be appreciated.
It's always seemed a bit of a disconnect for me that the Rogue uses magic books. If they have their own set of "books" is there some reason not to re-flavor them as something more physical/skill based? I'm thinking "Basic Thieves Kit", "Burglars Pack", "Manual of Tricks, Traps & Snares", "Hustlers Kit: Smoke & Mirrors".

The game mechanic remains the same but it makes it seem more like a skill they have instead of "oh yeah, they have magic too". Think Batman as opposed to X-Men.

The same logic could easily apply to the Ranger but it doesn't jar me so much when they use "spells".

It's actually a Rod Of Temporarily Disable Traps.

yes, it's intentional. just disarm the trap by walking on it.

A clarification on the glitch that leaves text on the right edge of the screen:

When I saw additional text running down the screen, other than just the leftover ) from a shop description, it seems it came from the magic item shop. Specifically, staves and wands with multiples of each, that have "Avg" to the right of the price, leaves the "v" of "Avg" on screen after leaving the shop. Since the "g" is wiped, I'm guessing there's an off-by-one error somewhere in determining which area of the screen to clear and redraw.

A quite unexperienced @ found an un-IDd Main Cauche when exploring DL9 (Main Cauche (1d5) (+0, +0) {??}). Interestingly the only question marks in the character screen are for attributes.

As someone that mainly played Angband in version 3.5.0, I'm a bit out of the loop here. I was under the impression that Priests were easy mode and Mage almost hard mode. Did this changed in the later versions?

Mage without resistance and haste is much weakened in 4.1.3 compared to 4.1.2 and earlier.

Clarifying - this does not happen in 4.1.3, which is the latest official release and what is available from the front page of rephial.org.

What Pete is talking about is the current master development branch, which has made major changes from 4.1.3. These changes will eventually become part of 4.2, when that is released.

I haven't played one, but looking at gamedata/class.txt the mage should get the Resistance spell in (town) book 3 also in the current master.
