    Default delay counting appears to get confused in some situations

    I just started a new run and I notice that Guide thinks I've somehow burned 3 more turns of delay than I actually have at the Spooky Forest. Log from my first visit to the Spooky Forest is as follows:

    Code:
    [1] The Spooky Forest
    Encounter: bar NAMED NEIL

    Round 2: bar takes 12 damage.
    Round 2: Malibu Stacey casts SING ALONG!
    Round 3: You lose 14 hit points
    Round 3: You lose 14 Mana Points
    Round 3: Trolliam says, "As Neal Stephenson once said, 'The difference between stupid and intelligent people -- and this is true whether or not they are well-educated -- is that intelligent people can handle subtlety,'" and beats your opponent with outrageous subtlety for 15 damage.
    Round 3: bar takes 15 damage.
    Round 3: Malibu Stacey casts ASDON MARTIN: SPRING-LOADED FRONT BUMPER!

    No semirare found yet this     run.
    
    Unexpired counters:
    Semirare window begin (69)
    Semirare     window end (79)
    Enamorang Monster (14)
    Digitize Monster (7)
    So it should really be showing 4 turns still to burn but for some reason it's showing 1.

    Addendum:
    Something in that broke Digitize monster counting too. Counter is up, I adventured at the Spooky Forest & got this.
    Code:
    [9] The Spooky Forest
    Encounter: spooky vampire AND TESLA!
    Round 0:     Malibu Stacey loses initiative!
    Round 1: You lose 1 hit point
    The other 6 adventures between those pasted were in the Hidden Pantry to unlock the guild.

    Hopefully my change to Genie, Witchess etc should stop this?

    I'll test it next run. I've changed the order I do things at the start of my run to mitigate that exact scenario above but I noticed it happening last weekend in-run when I used my 2 remaining Time-spinner minutes to adventure way back in time. My last adventure at that point was the Castle Ground Floor & I should have had 4 adventures left there to unlock but after killing the Time-Spinner monsters, Guide was showing 2 left.

    I saw from the changelog that Time-Spinner fights should also be similarly fixed so if I run into this anywhere else I'll raise a new issue.

    Thanks Darzil.
