GLK: AGT: The Multi-Dimensional Thief: Cannot put the hole on the floor

Description

The classic AGT game The Multi-Dimensional Thief by Joel Finch can be downloaded here:
https://ifdb.org/viewgame?id=waov63ym41b481n9

In the original AGT runner on DOSBox, putting the hole on the floor with the command PUT HOLE ON FLOOR will result in "You put the portable hole carefully on the ground, and hear a "pop" as it connects to whatever is below."

In ScummVM, this instead gives the response "There isn't any floor here to put the hole on."

This makes the game unwinnable, as you're unable to go to hell to retrieve the items stolen by the imps.

To test this: At the start of the game, type E, E, S, PUT HOLE ON FLOOR.
