[3.30] #TRACK issues
 
Reproduction sequence, using only one location named .. zugg:

Issue A: Location is still tracked when not tracking any location, although mapper does not update
1. Set position on map.
2. #TRACK (will set tracking location to <none>)
3. east
4. #TRACK zugg
5. Observe that the dot warps one direction east when you start tracking it again.

Issue B: Turning off Tracking and trying to view rooms
1. Set Position on map.
2. #TRACK (will set tracking location to <none>)
3. Click on a room on the map.
4. Should observe an error, and then the tracked location will be set to zugg.

Another note: What is the meaning of a disabled location?
the #LOCATION command displays that my location is disabled when I have the mapper off, but I see no functional difference between that, and having the mapper on follow. With the mapper on follow, it doesn't show up as disabled. I can toggle the disable state by using #LOCATION zugg, and #LOCATION zugg 0, but again I cannot tell that this does anything.

If I use the #TRACK command to track no location, the * indicating the current location never went away.

Your "Issue A" is the correct behavior. #TRACK is meant to control the display.
In step 2 you are telling the map display to not follow any specific #LOCATION setting. Step 3 updates the location, and the map does not display a change. Step 4 then set the map to display the 'zugg' location and it shows that the location had properly updated.

Hmm, Ok. That seems like it could be useful. I do not know what the intended behavior is really of disabled locations. I am just looking for some way of doing what turning the mapper to off did before so I can switch to 3.30.

I had also been wondering about this, as it didn't seem to do anything for me either. It would be nice if disabling a location would hide the display of that location on the map.

Hmm, it should. Disabling a location is supposed to prevent it from displaying, so this sounds like a bug.
