Summary 0009391: Hexes don't check for immunity while targetting properly.
Description For example, the game currently lets you waste a turn casting confuse on a confuse-immune monster that isn't MR_IMMUNE (e.g. gargoyle), even telling you that you have some % chance of success. The monster has the usual % chance of giving the MR-based resistance message, but will be unaffected regardless.

There are three(?) separate issues here:

1. Confuse and Freeze, perhaps others, don't know which things are immune at all: the hostiles-in-range check accepts the immune. This doesn't happen with e.g. Pain. In addition, Confuse can give the "resists" messages against immune creatures (E.H. and pain always say "unaffected").

2. If both a susceptible and an immune creature are in range, spells (perhaps all spells? tested with Pain and Ensorcelled Hibernation) can start targetting on, and cycle to, the immune one. The two related bugs are about this problem.

3. The chance % display on hexes only considers MR, and not other things (like holiness for Confuse, rC for Hibernation) that would prevent the effect.

In addition to second issue, this can also happen if you forcecast the spell - even with all targets in view being immune - via macros like [Za], [Zb] and so on or when you click on your spellbar (tiles version). In the former case it's possible for a spell to autotarget an immune monster, even with a susceptible one present in the effective range.

Hibernation, on top of rC preventing it, also has a short-term immunity that (to the best of my knowledge) is not displayed at all in the game and should probably be visible in the targeter too.

1 is partially fixed by [^] (there are still a number of spells with this issue, though).
2 was fixed by [^]

Still working on 3.
