Summary 0009838: no warning for trying to fire (throw) through allied summon
Description Was throwing a tomahawk without paying attention to the line of fire thinking i get a warning if it's through allied summons but nope, hit my deva and got instant penance from TSO. Deva was in front of the target, not behind.

Pretty much default rc file if that matters.
There should be a warning like there is for using bolt wands.

The bug is caused by this line of code [^]

Lost two characters to this bug, and was able to reproduce it consistently with a clean .rc file, you must position yourself above-right your summon while aiming at something below the summon as in this screenshot ( [^] The game will not ask you for confirmation and you will hit your summon. If you position yourself directly behind, or to the left of the summon, this does not happen and a confirmation is requested.

Steps to reproduce:
Make HuSu
Enter wizmode
&E # stop time
&mgnoll sergeant # summon enemy
&o(stone # give yourself ammo
&zice beast # summon ice beast
xm # teleport ice beast to match the position in attached screenshot
ff or <TAB> # throw stone at gnoll sergeant

Expected results: "Really fire through your Ice Beast? Y/N"

Observed results: "The stone hits your Ice Beast!"
EDIT: This will also happen if you rotate 180 degrees, that is you will stand below-left of the summon like this ( [^]
