I've noticed this a few times recently.

In this log, I am leading the group and have a glowing item equipped. I am the first person into the room, so I'm not sure why it'd be dark. Then later on, when Leila leaves the room, it goes back to being dark, despite me still wearing a glowing item.

You jog northwest.

The Blood Sacrifice Holding Cell
Below the metal grate in the ceiling, this room is relatively empty.
Well-fitted stone blocks comprise the walls as well as the floor, and a thin
layer of dust covers much of it. Adamantite doors block off further passage

A Large Holding Cell
You find yourself within a large holding cell. Well-fitted stone blocks
comprise the walls as well as the floor, and a thick layer of soiled straw
has been dropped in piles on it. A thick, sticky scent of excrement and
vomit fills the air as does the foreboding sense of desperation and broken
dreams. Rats frequently weave themselves through the straw, their squeaks
and clawing sounds often echo off the walls.

I think glowing items only increase your chance to illuminate the room. But sometimes it is still too dark and you need more than one item to succeed in illuminating the room. Hence why you could see with Leila and not once she left.

There may still be a very rare but long-standing bug where the light count in the room can get decremented too many times and end up in the negatives. Which then requires multiple light sources to illuminate the room. But this always gets cleared up when the game gets rebooted, which has been regularly scheduled for years now. Presumably if you went back with the same group after the reboot, you wouldn't have the problem any longer.

I like the idea about some rooms needing more light than others to be illuminated enough to see stuff though....
