I actually misunderstood this until I read your explanation. I got that
{wIb} was a typo for {yIb}. But I thought that the gas was coming spreading
through the vents, because I suppose the typical scenario with poison gas is
that someone tosses a canister into a building with a circulatory system,
and suddenly gas is coming *out* of all of the vents. I interpreted {nargh}
as "appear" rather than "escape", but in retrospect had that been the
intention it would've been {yIbmeyvo'
narghpu'...} not {-Daq}.

And actually mightn't {yIbmeyDaq ngabpu'...} "... disappeared into the
vents" be better?
