Persistent hole endpoints

NamePersistent hole endpoints v1.0
Rating80%
AuthorPasi Kallinen
ForNetHack 3.4.3
DescriptionA hole or a trapdoor will always lead to a same level and location.
 When you fall through a trapdoor or a hole, you will always end up in the same randomly chosen location when falling through that particular trap, except if the level you'll end up on has restrictions on where you are allowed to land, then the location is random. This includes most of the special levels, such as Medusa, Wizard's tower, Castle and the Valley.

Breaks save and bone compatibility.

(That is: outside of the sokoban area, surrounded by undiggable walls). I have not looked at the source, but is it possible that this patch is responsible for such strange behaviour? Maybe in combination with the sokoban patch?

Here is the sokoban patch i am using:

This is a very interesting idea, however, a lot of thought should go into anticipating all the implications of this patch....[Quote]
