In the following, lines starting --> were typed by me (in the "client" tab), those starting with a datestamp were the replies.

This happens for any command not marked CMD_CONSOLE - i.e. a command not suppsoed to be run from the console. We correctly handle this in /help and tab-completion, but it's trickier when resolving commands.

A non-CMD_CONSOLE commands must still be usable if you type it out directly or dispatch() it, and it would be bad to say "ambiguous command" and only list 1 command, which leaves the only option to be not allowing non-CMD_CONSOLE commands to be shortened - which isn't ideal either.
Workaround: /alias te testdisplay
