That is a side effect of the auditing and other code noticing things
that I felt were important enough details that needed to be brought to
the attention of the user whatever their preference to not normally see
map related details.  Unnamed and Duplicate area names have been issues
that break things (the mapper area selection widget for one thing) for
some time and we now actively prevent such things - since this means
changing things in an existing map I do not think these are details that
we should not draw the user's attention to them.

For any particular file this will happen when it is checked and "fixed"
and should not show again if the file is saved and then reused.
{Attempts to do things that would result in an unnamed (blank) or
duplicate area names WILL fail with appropriate error messages.}  The -1
area IS required and must be added to a map (file) without it - if the
option to show it is enabled (it is by default) it will appear in the
area selection widget and can be displayed - which may surprise a user -
hence this must also (IMHO) be reported.

I note from the included text that the map file used is recorded as
"/home/vadi/Dropbox/MMC/mapping/Sidd Map 1-25-15.dat" and presumable it
is being repeatedly used and not saved - so then the messages noted WILL
reoccur each time the file is loaded but this does not represent normal
usage in my opinion.

I will tentatively mark this bug as "invalid" but the OP may of course
review and revise that action.

  Map issues still reported to screen with 'report map issues to screen'
  turned off

Status in Mudlet:

Bug description:
  Even though the I have the 'report map issues to screen' checkbox
  turned off when selecting and loading in a map, 20+ lines related to
  map issues are still printed to the screen:

  [ INFO ]  - Reading map (format version:16) file:
              "/home/vadi/Dropbox/MMC/mapping/Sidd Map 1-25-15.dat",
              please wait...
  [ ALERT ] - Empty and duplicate area names detected in Map file!
  [ INFO ]  - Due to some situations not being checked in the past,  Mudlet had
              allowed the map to have more than one area with the same or no 
              These make some things confusing and are now disallowed.
                To resolve these cases, an area without a name here (or created 
              the future) will automatically be assigned the name "Unnamed 
                Duplicated area names will cause all but the first encountered 
              to gain a "_###" style suffix where each "###" is an increasing
              number; you may wish to change these, perhaps by replacing them 
              a "(sub-area name)" but it is entirely up to you how you do this,
              other then you will not be able to set one area's name to that of
              another that exists at the time.
                If there were more than one area without a name then all but the
              first will also gain a suffix in this manner.
  [  OK  ]  - The changes made are:
              (ID) "old name" ==> "new name"
              (0) "<nothing>" ==> "Unnamed Area"
  [ INFO ]  - Default (reset) area name (for rooms that have not been assigned 
to an
              area) not found, adding "Default Area" against the reserved -1 id.

  I think none of this should show, it should just go into the
  errors.txt unless you have that checkbox enabled (and the checkbox to
  fully do what it claims to say!).
