0001892: Dwarves do not drop equipment on uniform change
When I change equipment loadouts in military screen, dwarves keep their old equipment and try to wear the new stuff on top of it. Similarly, if a dwarf is removed from a squad he keeps all of his gear. As far as I know this happens every time but I have not tested it all that extensively. Seems to go along with the "dorfs pick up weapons they shouldn't" bug.
1. Assign some stuff, let em pick it up and then remove from mil screen.
2. ???
3. Epic fail

I don't think this report differs substantially from 0000648, which deals with multiple sets of equipment on soldiers due to uniform changes and other factors.

If you feel that 0000648 doesn't describe your experienced behaviour, feel free to reopen this bug report or contact me on the forums via PM.
