That's a good point; I think I may have a time in there for the
nonexistent "Epimenides" level (from one of the posts to the list)
which I sort of shoved into the Enigma 3 pack locally in order to try
it out.  That should be removed just in case there's a conflict, since
it doesn't correspond to any "official" Enigma 0.92 level AFAIK.
Other than that, paging through the level packs, I don't see any cases
where a game engine bug has helped me.

In some cases I used a stranger-than-usual strategy in order to solve
levels, some of which might be construed as level bugs; for instance,
in Oxyds #117 "Per.Oxyd 55", my strategy was (rot13 to avoid

It's hard to tell whether the level designers intended this or not, so
I assume it's a valid way to solve the level, by default...
