I haven't examined the issue myself, but I wouldn't be surprised if
`looks_like` objects would always be hooked up into the global group
(again presumably because no thought had been given about the
interaction of these two features).

A workaround would be to replace the `looks_like` object with a
corresponding "regular" object in the same light group, with
`no_shadow`, `no_radiosity` and whatever other flags the `looks_like`
feature automatically sets.
