0010757: minecarts dumped from other minecarts sometimes do not fall properly into pit
http://dffd.bay12games.com/file.php?id=13763 [^]
This save is a reproduction of the issue that is occurring in a current game.

When put in a minecart and track-stop-dumped into the air, other minecarts may hang in the air instead of falling. Some minecarts fall successfully, some do not.
in the save, build more minecarts and they will be hauled, and some will become stuck.
No tags attached.

To quote http://dwarffortresswiki.org/index.php/DF2014:Minecart#Stacking [^] :

If a minecart lands on top of another minecart, they may form a stack, with the upper cart on the z-level above the lower. Subsequent carts do not form a stack, but rather quantum stockpile in the same space.

I don't know if this is intentional behavior or not, but it's documented.

That is it. As soon as the dwarf steps away after picking up the cart, the next cart falls down.

I do not see an option to close this out.
