GRIM: Game locks if the user opens the inventory while Manny is knocking at Glottis' door

If the user asks Manny to knock at Glottis' garage door, and while he is approaching the door the user quickly opens the inventory, the game locks.

It's due to a bug in the scripts, since it happens also with the original executable

This is a lot larger of an issue than just using that one door. They have a fairly common pattern in the scripts (used 73 times).

if (walk manny to the object) {

disable input;
enable input;

The walk Manny call will return true when Manny makes it to the object and false if he gets blocked. The possible fixes I see are to to disable the inventory key while walking to an object, or make the inventory key cancel the walking.

I'll just leave this here.

Trying to reproduce this bug, I get an error ImSetParam: getting name from number is not supported! and the debugger is called. It happens when I open the inventory (keypress i) whatever if Manny is walking or not, as long as he is in the garage. Is it the same problem?
