0009463: Announce spam of child dropping cups
Not sure how it started, but this child is playing make believe in a dormitory.

It has two golden goblets in its hand. It is constantly dropping them one after another in sequence, then pick up again.

It isn't disruptive spam, but it is enough to fill the announce screen in between other events.

See 0009456, "Dwarves claim ownership of an item they pick up that matches a preference, then never put it down" Does it like gold or cups? Maybe it tries to keep them but either their mass or make believe makes it drop them.

He likes "gold". So that would probably be a reason for him to want to hold them. Is there anything I can do to stop him from picking them up continually?

I suppose, forbidding, but I wanted some nice goblets for my Inn :D

If this isn't solved by the 0009456 fix, let me know.
