Sangband - Rest won't stop until hungry

Hi! age long snooper here!

I've been playing Sangband since it's inception and Moria before that. I've only beaten the game once as a troll priest and have had endless characters die between floors 60-80. I've even kept most of my game folders dating back to .95 and older! However I've recently started coming up with an issue that has taken me aback.

As the titles states, Rest (R* or TAB) seems to get stuck in sleep mode until my character is hungry! If I accidentally hit tab again, I'm at weak! Then 1st Paralyzed! Yeah, my hubris gets to me sometimes and I mash buttons. Any button I press seems to continue, instead of escape (SPACE, ESC, etc) the cycle.

However my hobbit thief is somehow still alive and just dropped 8 floors to lvl 31, to up the challenge again. I'm not sure how I can even continue without keeping 30 rations of food on me for each time I rest...

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Is anyone doing any active development for Sangband? A friend once dabbled in editing monsters and rebalanancing the game; but it was lost in an epic computer failure. I've been considering taking a further look into the coding and seeing if my rudimentary knowledge in programming might help take Sangband in new directions. 1.0.2 was an amazing transition and I more or less haven't played anything but hobbit thieves that hide in the darkness since it hit!

Thanks!

I may have answered my own question. It seems if I give the game an extended wait, I can cancel the sleep cycle with a movement. This means giving the game a full 1-2 seconds and then pressing a cancellation key. Why it suddenly sprung up, I'm completely unsure--but it's working at an acceptable level.

It seems difficult to get Mr Middendorf's actual email. Does anyone have a contact email for Camlost?

Nope. It's not fixed at all.

I have copied my save to a fresh folder and I suffer the same fate. I thought maybe because I had Magical Power and had since reduced Spellcasting to 0, maybe it was trying to fill a non-existent mana pool. However, I've since added Sorcery, reduced MP to 0 and taken Spellcasting back off and suffered the same fate.

It's becoming harder to survive and quest levels require me to purchase 40+ food (some levels don't provide light...) and dropping large quantities in piles to eat when I'm in trouble.

I haven't seen anything really related in the forums.

Dreaming of a pragmatic solution.

Okay... It's not really what I want, but I'll tweak it as necessary.

TAB now = R100\r

It'll do for now and won't make me starve all the time. Both R*\r and R&\r are fails right now.

And moments later, on level 33, I'm dead. Well that's all for this session fellas. Lost my wallet last night; played some Sangband to cope with the woes of all my money gone up in smoke and now one of the best Hobbit thieves I've ever played just died... Sad day...

Oof, that's a rough day. Sorry for your losses. I wish I knew what the problem was with the rest command. Best I can think of is suggesting you take a close look at your disturbance options; maybe something got screwed up in there somehow.
