There is a bug here, but not on the portal lines. The portal setups must be set to "Static (Eternity)" in order to transmit lights - these are only "Visual + Simple Teleporter".

The bug exists in the overhead room though - the light should work properly there and it doesn't.

Try this edited version of the map. The flashlight works a lot better, here.

Thanks for reply and recommendations, but still flashlight does not shine through the portal correctly. Is this issue fixable?

The issue as reported - no, it is not a bug, as I have demonstrated in the attached wad. If you are experiencing this issue, then the mapper must fix their portals.

The additional issue that I found in the small portal room - I think only Graf can fix that, and I am not even sure he can or wants to.
