0007022: Stealth-choking wrestling/fighter exploit
This bug goes hand in hand with the bug where enemies are not alerted to you when you attack them while stealthed. (Which is another major exploit!)

But the big issue here is that failing a chokehold while stealthed gives over 100 wrestling and fighter experience!

While it's a pretty funny thing that surprise-chokeholds give bonus experience, this is both a bit too much and a pretty sad sight alongside the stealth bug.
Sneak up on a big target
Place a free hand on their throat
Attempt to place a chokehold
Enemies should probably attempt to face whatever is trying to attack them from behind.
No tags attached.

This actually also counts for takedowns (same crazy experience gain), and likely all the other wrestling moves that can fail like this.
