Sword of Zonguldruk has bad interactions with multi hits

Example: My FoAs of Dith shoots an iron shot at an enemy. The first shot kills it, the enemy becomes a zombie, then my shadow shot hits it. Zombie turns hostile and I have to run for my life.

Feature not bug? Or can this be fixed?

Re: Sword of Zonguldruk has bad interactions with multi hits

this is a general interaction issue with the following:

death channel
lrd
fireball
dithmenos

for dith it would probably need to be changed so shadow mimics don't affect allies

It's fixable by using a final_effect (see how Infestation was handled when affected by the same issue, and the Mantis issue), but a bit more complex for Death Channel and Zonguldrok, since Infestation doesn't care about what the actual monster was before it died. Patches welcome!
