CMUD generating paths with non-standard exits surrounded by .( )
 
Generating paths from the mapper using #WAL or %pathexpand / %pathFrom with e,w,s,e,u,d etc all works fine. But when it's something like 'enter door' sometimes it gets 'enter door' correctly from the mapper.

Other times, it inputs .(enter door) and the whole thing falls apart because of course, the MUD doesn't recognize .(enter door) as a command.

Why's it doing this, and how do I get it to stop?

That is the shorthand in pathing to identify non-cardinal exits.
It's possible that your map thinks there is a door there when there isn't and is sending the wrong command.

I had to code a workaround by 'if the entry is =~ .~((*)~)' {%pat(1)} to strip the .( ) manually
