Summary 0011729: Roxanne's dropped spellbook not marked for autopickup
Description CAO Webtiles, trunk branch.
After killing Roxanne, her exclusion is removed as expected but the spellbook she drops was not marked for autopickup (other spellbooks in this run were autopickuped with no issue). Arrows used to kill her in the same tile were correctly marked for autopickup, however.
I think this has happened to me at least once before in trunk a few weeks ago but am not sure.

I'm pretty sure that you've already seen the book she dropped. That's the reason it wasn't on autopickup. If anything, there are books that are on autopickup, when they shouldn't be.

FR: don't pick up books with no new spells.

Unfortunately I don't seem to be tracking this in my chardump (, [^] but I checked before reporting and when I picked it up I got the "You memorize..." message , not the "No new spells" message. Should have taken a screenshot. It's possible I am wrong, but I don't think I had Statue Form in the library before doing Spider (she dropped Book of the Earth).

I just experienced the OP's bug report. See text at bottom of attached screen capture.
I'm playing a DDNe and this is the first spellbook with Earth spells I've come across so there is no reason why the book should not be autopickup.

There is a vault that puts preidentified book of Dreams amongst clouds. It's also not on autopickup.

Deciding if a book should be picked up by whether you saw it before or not is a stupid thing anyway. One and the only factor should be the availability of new spells in it.

Books from new 0.25 ?acquirement are also off autopickup.

I believe this happens with books in shops too? As soon as you see a certain book in a shop, it's turned off and not auto picked up later when you eventually find the same book on the ground... I'm sure I've had this happen.
