Difficulty of IDing some runes

Description

"Playing a HE priest, I unsuccessfully tried to identify a ring of the dog´s fear resistance. After enduring an enemy priest for long enough to get exposed to about a dozen attempts at scaring me, I gave up and recalled to sell the thing.

So I am wondering, wouldnt it be better to trigger identification even on a successful save, and, somewhat related, shouldnt intrinsic features like a half-trolls strength sustain also give automatic knowledge of the rune of same ? " - Estie

More examples:
"Treacherous Weapon doesn't seem to do anything. I used one for a long while (other curse activated ~5x) before giving up on auto-ID. Sold to store to discover it." - Pete Mack

"I've put on a cursed shield and can see on the C screen that it makes me vulnerable to fire, but again, I haven't learned the rune. I feel like the "burning up" and "chilled to the bone" curses should probably just be apparent on wielding because they're difficult to discover. (I'm not sure they really work that well as curses at all, to be honest, since I'm never really conscious of their effects during gameplay. Ditto for steelskin.)" - Nomad

"When I put on a ring with the cowardice curse, I get the "You are too afraid to attack" message if I try to hit anything, but the rune for the curse isn't learned and it stays unidentified. (Still playing 6ba537e at the moment.) " - Nomad

"Ok, build 4.0.3-748-g2e2a52b. If I cast rfire it doesn't id the fire rune. If I cast rfire while wearing a shield of rfire it does id the fire rune. Seems a bit weird. " - wobbly

f28b8354 made runes learnt even when the effect is saved against, fixed treacherous weapon, and should help with learning constant fear.
