Not quite sure what the correct behaviour is here. There is code to say "something starts moving faster" and "something slows down", but is that correct - if the mimic is the only thing in the room, do we want to say that, or say nothing?

Actually that code also has a flaw, as the monster name is set to "something" if unaware, but the next bit of code changes the "something" into "it".

So I did some hunting down and the only way mimics can be hasted without being activated is aggravate monster. So my fix in 2226386 activates mimics on aggravate effects.

Really? I tested with a shrieker mushroom patch and a chest mimic, and I thought the mimic got hasted without being noticed. I can check again.

What we should do though is decide what the behaviour *should* be, and then code that! :-)

That's what I did - I asked on angband-dev and coded the desired behaviour that came out of the discussion. It just wasn't committed to a public repo yet, sorry! (hence 'pending') Should be fixed in 3.5-release now

Note that "cloning" effect is still weird. You notice that there was a mimic, that it is now hasted and that a new one spawned, but the spawned mimic is not discovered as it probably should.
