Summary 0008202: Duplicate messages displayed in log when enemy uses ranged weapons
Description When an enemy fires a ranged weapon, either by a launcher or by throwing, the message is displayed twice in the active message log.

When bringing up the full message log via Ctrl-p the message is only displayed once.

This can be seen in the attached screenshot where the message "The orc throws a tomahawk" is shown twice in the short message log, but only once in the larger log. I completely removed my config when reproducing the issue.

I definitely have seen this happen with Kobolds throwing darts and Yaktaurs firing bolts, although I can't confirm that this is always the case.

Attached a second image showing a goblin throwing two tomahawks and being displayed three times. It appears inconsistent in how often this text is duplicated

Attached a third image showing Crazy Yiuf zapping a wand once and it being displayed twice. It seems that this is not strictly limited to ranged weapons.

Added a fourth image showing a centaur wielding his bow, and shooting me, and it being displayed twice.

The text "The centaur wields a bow. The centaur shoots an arrow" was duplicated, but the text "The arrow hits you" and "The arrow misses you" was not.

Awesome! This had been bugging me for a bit. I played a few games in trunk and didn't notice this behavior anymore.

Thank you very much!
