Ok, I did what you did, putting 1 bread in the first, 2 in the second,

It did not do that for me.  It showed me what was in 2.bag.  To look in
the bag I was holding I simply typed 'look in bag'.

That it does, and based on what I experienced, it is what I expected.

Nor should it.  Apparently, the look command searches through what you
are holding first.  The 1.bag and 2.bag stuff looks through your unequiped
inventory.  0.bag doesn't seem to work.  Is that what you mean?  I don't
know what it would do if you were wearing a bag, though.

Yeah, I got them all, but I figured someone else would be more certain
of what was going on than I.
