2016 HELP: HG: The case of the vanishing suitcase.

The case of the vanishing suitcasesSome people have lost suitcases from their inventories, apparently after a grid upgrade to OS 0.8.2.  The loss may be limited to the current Firestorm 32 bit version.  Workarounds are suggested.  I have multiple reports of vanishing suitcases.  Many who travel the Hypergrid need the suitcase to carry things to and from other grids or even to read notecards in other grids.  If you get a notecard, you have to get it into your inventory and find it in order to read it.  Your suitcase.
