Descriptive Problem Summary:
I'm not sure how valid this bug is but I made a demo of it at http://www.mediafire.com/?ttqbr2h5qpn2ihg
Basically, there is an Observe verb, which is supposed to allow you to observe objects and players specified in the Observe_List, but it appears on things that it shouldn't appear for when you right click them. In this case, the NPC mob, which isn't supposed to be observable. When you right click the NPC you see the Observe verb, if you click it, it says the target is invalid.
The demo is just hypothetical and not practical, but what I'm really using the concept for is practical. I just simplified it here.
Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:
Run the demo the code there reproduces it.
Code Snippet (if applicable) to Reproduce Problem:
The Observe verb should not appear when right clicking an object that is not in the list that the Observe verb is searching through.
It does appear when you right click, but if you click it, it says the target is invalid.
