SCI: LB2: Yvette/Tut Premature Murder Discussion

Description

Asking Yvette about Tut at the act 2 party in floppy versions causes Laura to prematurely ask if she thinks he murdered Pippin Carter even though no one's been murdered yet and Pippin Carter is in the room.

I'm submitting a fix for this message sequence so that at the party only the first three messages are displayed (asking about Tut) and the last two (follow up question about the murder) are skipped. This is effectively what Sierra did in the cd version, though in doing so they introduced another bug, which I'll be creating a ticket and script patch for shortly.

Attached is a save from floppy 1.0 english at the party with Yvette and Pippin. Ask her about Tut.

All floppy versions, including localized versions, are affected. I've confirmed that the French/German/Spanish versions also have this message as 5 tuples so they are also correctly fixed.
