Soldier ants are one of those enemies the game seems to expect you to use a trick to handle.
Minor spoilers:
Elebereth, a mirror, or a camera could be useful

I died even with amulet of life saving in a weird situation. It happened in the first level of sokoban, suddenly a barrow wight appeared and blasted with wand of sleep, then began to drain experience. In fact I died in life drainage. There was also a baby long worm at the right side. I guess I could have done something when I woke up the first time, but what? Elbereth maybe.. This is another of those things, monsters with wands. But I guess it's realistic and you should have protection against sleep etc.

Should probably start a new topic, because this is about 3.6.6. release. Has anyone noticed that it seems to have a lot of problems in Windows console? It's acting really weird, sometimes scrolling the top text off the screen and it's slow (doesn't respond to keypresses fast). I wonder what happened. I guess they figure this out soon and release a fix, but this is quite special in Nethack's history.

Edit: I noticed that the console size was 120 x 9000 for whatever reason. I guess it's somehow updating the non-visible parts, because when manually changed it to 80 x 25 it seems like that problem was solved. Not sure which one is buggy, Nethack or Windows console.
