description, restore curse removal, allow branding of cursed items, know
curses on wield (instead of pickup), turn cursed egos into curses, replace
OF_TELEPORT with OF_NO_TELEPORT, redo teleportation jewelry as cursed

known, notice artifacts, apply auto-id, "assess" objects, ignore items
eligible for ignoring

- Display temporary effect (resistance, ESP) with a light green '!' on the
player screen object property grid instead of using the green header which is
reserved for immunity

screen object property grid (temporary resistance to fire was displayed twice)
- Make sure the object still exists when ignoring an object from the ignore menu
to avoid crashing the client (corpses may have decomposed, ...)

- Update quiver count when dropping a partial stack of missiles
- Don't draw breath effect over the breather
- Fix "resist acid" element/rune learned when hit by a Darkness spell
