What happens when you grow claws while wearing cursed gloves?
In Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup, what happens when you grow claws while you wear cursed gloves?

If your claw mutation reaches level 3 (You have claws for hands.), then any gloves are forcibly removed, regardless of whether they are cursed or not.
The same thing happens with boots and the talon / hooves mutations, as well as helmets and the horns, antennae and beak mutations.
The relevant source code calls a function in the transformation code path used for melding items into your body. That code does not bother to check the cursed status of an item.
