Hello, I'm playing v1.06, and the torch exploit is still around. If you click on the Torch icon at the top right corner, activating the torch will count as one turn; however, if you press T, it does not count as one turn. Cheers!
FTR, this bug has been fixed in Book II, but is still one of the few 'unfixed' bugs in Book I.
Assuming there's ever a 'Platinum' Edition of Book I
, I would assume this bug (and the other few remaining Book I bugs) will get fixed then.
But if not, this just may be one of those bugs that never quite gets fixed in Book I...
