Summary 0010659: Petrify lists success chance vs player ghosts, which can't be affected
Description When trying to use petrify vs insubstantial enemies (i.e. spectral caustic shrike, insubstantial wisp), you will see this message:

You can't see any susceptible monsters within range! (Use Z to cast anyway.)

However, when using petrify against player ghosts, that message is not displayed, it lists a % chance to affect the ghost. After casting the spell it will say:

John Doe's ghost is unaffected.

The game should emit the same message for player ghosts as for other insubstantial enemies.

Steps to reproduce:
Summon player ghost in wizmode using &m player ghost hd:1
Cast petrify

Similar thing happens with some other enemies, like trying to paralyze/enslave a gargoyle with a wand: Displays a %chance before casting but says "unaffected" after wasting time/charges.

This is still (0.21.0) the case. Other instances: wraith, catoblepas.

Gargoyles are not immune to wand paralysis/enslavement.

I believe ench_flavor_affects_monster is supposed to check if a given beam type will affect a given monster, but it does not account for the Petrify beam type.

To fix this, I have uploaded a git patch using Upload File above - please let me know if this is the correct way to submit fixes.
