In 0009863 nago describes another symptom:

When firing/zapping a spell, lost souls aren't select among the possible targets, and it's necessary to manual aim for them - even if they are the only visible target in LOS.

This applies to all no-exp monsters, but confusingly not to conjured-only things like IOOD that are always worth 0 XP but don't have the no-exp flag.

amalloy has a fix for this at [^] , but IIRC it still needs some tweaks: I don't think it was ever decided which monsters should get which flag; and a few of the checks like Gozag goldification use (IMO) the wrong flag.

Added related issue "spells do not target crawling corpses". (Maybe duplicate would have been better?)

Fixed by recent changes to "harmless"/0-xp monster handling.
