LURE: Messages sometimes refer to the wrong object

Latest ScummVM SVN snapshot Lure of the Temptress, English version
Sometimes, when interacting with an object, the game prints a message that refers to the wrong object, or no object at all. For instance, if I try to pick up the barrel early in the game, I often get "The is far too heavy!" and sometimes when I've tried to pick up the sack I've gotten "The Cell door is far too heavy!"
I don't know about the empty string (the most common glitch?) but I did notice something interesting regarding the sack/cell door one.
As soon as the command is issued, the engine calls setField(ACTIVE_HOTSPOT_ID, ...) to, I guess, make the sack the active hotspot. But sometimes something causes setField(ACTIVE_HOTSPOT_ID, ...) to be called again in the time it takes for the protagonist to actually do the command. For instance, it can take a while for him to walk to the correct spot.
Dreammaster suggested that it may be some non-player character, e.g. the Skorl, triggering the change of hotspot.
