  1. Load the attached save file.
  2. Use the Horn of Goodness/Evil to cast Magic Circle Against Evil on the PC (f1, click on PC).
  3. Save the game in a new slot.
  4. Load the save file you just created.
  5. Rest the PC.

The aura is not canceled by the rest.

Resting should cancel the aura.

This issue affects all aura type areas of effect. Once the game is saved and loaded with aura effects active they will be permanent regardless of duration or rest (they can still be dispelled, if I recall correctly). Furthermore, the aura will go away if the PC changes areas, but upon returning to the area where the aura became permanent, it will reappear.
