When trying to port this or a similar room, with my auto-port program, I
often ran into properties set to 'E_PERM'... it could be that the program
was trying to do a length(this.thing_indexes) when .thing_indexes was set to
E_PERM because of some porting error.  Make sure the property is set to
something that has a length, such as a string or list.  I recommend setting
it to {}.
