If I want to point the AI ship in any other direction I can always change the ANGLE property in a later line of code.


Well, presumably the intention is for the angle to be towards the center if no angle is specified, and the angle given if one is specified. But it is more an issue than a bug that it doesn't work since it can be overridden with set_object_property.

Alternately, the angle attribute can be deprecated, or stated to be intended only for type="player".

I'll admit that I don't even bother setting angle. (Even though I assign a value to it. I should probably just go remove that)
