Summary 0009614: Fix targeting of Dithmenos spell-shadowing
Description See [^] - before this change, Dithmenos's shadow spell-mimicking could cause a shadowed beam spell to hit something that you intentionally chose to avoid hitting. Tested locally in wizmode, and confirmed that this patch fixes the relevant behavior. I don't imagine it has side effects elsewhere, since it's a pretty targeted fix, but I don't know.

Steps to reproduce original broken behavior:

Enter wizmode, give yourself Magic Dart, join dithmenos, set piety to 200.

Find a monster (sleeping for convenience), and get it a few tiles away from you, in a cardinal direction (eg, directly west).

Cast Magic Dart, targeted not at the monster but at a tile between you and it, via `za.` to target the floor tile between you and not go past it.

Your dart will not hit the monster, but if your shadow mimics your spell (likely but not guaranteed, I think, with 200 piety), the resulting shadow shard will hit the monster.
