0001149: dwarves ignore refuse pile settings for vermin corpses
Dwarves seem to ignore refuse stockpile settings with respect to disposing of vermin.

I noticed this attempting to set up a separate animal refuse stockpile for butchering that wouldn't get cluttered by vermin corpses.

I haven't been able to confirm if other corpses are also ignoring this, but they do not seem to be so far, that I have noticed.
1> Start up (or load) a fortress with a type of vermin/vermin corpse in abundance. Cats make things go faster.
2> Set up a refuse stockpile that only accepts a single type of remains. It doesn't matter what animal (I specifically had a Rat remains stockpile in my most recent experience with this problem). Fewer refuse stockpiles will make this obvious faster.
3> Watch what vermin corpses dwarves bring to the stockpile. If you haven't had a refuse stockpile before, but have had cats awhile, expect a huge influx of random vermin corpses dumped into your stockpile.
Could be related to 0000061?

I thought it was the cats doing this at first and didn't think much of it (they're cats after all, not clever dwarves) so I didn't report it sooner.

In any case shouldn't be as annoying in the next version if vermin corpses "rot" now.

Since 'remains' are only vermin remains now and in a different category from corpses/body parts, this bug does no longer exist.
