Actually this has nothing to do with constriction, it will just randomly* fail ( usually when targeting the edge of LoS) saying you step into the foo's shadow, a turn passes some piety is consumed and you stay exactly where you are.

* sometimes repeated (2-3) attempts will work but sometimes it won't work at all.

Investigation suggests this is caused when the desired location to step to is occupied by an invisible enemy. As of 0.14-a0-2098-g343cedf, it prints a different message than "You step into the foo's shadow." when this occurs, but perhaps a more graceful solution to this is feasible.

I'm pretty sure I had SInv on that char. Come to think of it I had Night stalker and I was trying to step to the edge of LoS so it might have tried to land me out of LoS and refused to let me move. Or into a wall?

I'm going to resolve this - if issues crop up more and/or we decide we're not happy with the status quo here, reopen the bug.
