  Added speedrun: 24 moves (old: 28).
Rather pointless optimization...

  It's actually kinda fun to watch the escapist do his little dance in the mystery solution. :)

  Yeah, this definitely can happen if you use solution import. (I've had it happen to me, too.) I'm changing it now to automatically trim the solution that it finds so that it will be the right length.

  I looked at the player file and discovered that the mystery solution is identical to my solution for the level cc3f2354eeb9f8c2f2e1778ec3f83ad0, whichever that is. Could this be the solution-recovery at work?

  lol. You know your level is loose or easy if it's automatically solved by solutions to random other levels.

  Added solution "Mystery solution."

  Weird bug report: This level seems to have solved itself. That is, there's a solution for it on the level menu (although not a rating), but I don't know where it came from, and the solution is broken--the player reaches the exit after something like 100 moves, but then he keeps moving (on and off the exit!) for another 700 moves.

I'm going to try to upload the solution to the server.

I also had this happen on "Which Exit Works?", but in my puzzlement I solved it for real and apparently overwrote the mystery solution.
