Summary 0001338: Flying summons will not be placed over deep water or lava
Description Effects that summon flying or levitating creatures (imps, demons, butterflies, wraiths, wasps, etc - even fire storm's vortices) all refuse to place them over deep water or lava, instead doing nothing. These effects should work the same as they do when over land, as the creatures ignore such terrain entirely. Summoning effects that can summon both flying and nonflying creatures could either skip over nonflying creatures or function normally, with nonflying creatures immediately drowning.

Summoned swimming creatures like ugly things and ice beasts don't have this problem - they already work fine in deep water.

This also happens for Conjuror spell Battlesphere. Understandably, with something like Summon Butterflies, they may take off from the ground (or shallow water?), but the Battlesphere is always flying, so there's no good reason for it not to be summoned in-flight over deep water.

Already fixed (in 0.13-a0-129-gdb45db7) by the time you commented here. I simply hadn't closed the issue yet!

This one is in the low 1000, so I wasn't expecting a fix (I figured I'd record the Battlesphere discrepancy though), but what with all the bugs being raided lately, good job!
