0011786: item randomly catches fire
An item in the refuse stockpile catches fire one tick after continuing save.

Load the game, navigate up to the surface. In the refuse stockpile 0000012, locate the draltha tooth. Advance the game by one tick. The draltha tooth is now on fire.

It is always the same item that catches fire.

Save can be found at: https://dffd.bay12games.com/file.php?id=15609 [^]
Not observed outside the particular save
No tags attached.

I don't have the save as evidence, but this sounds like what happened to me yesterday. Same df version, but on Linux.

My corpse stockpile spontaneously caught fire immediately after a continuing save. As far as I could tell, troglodyte bodyparts were all that was in it. After a crash unrelated to df (laptop ran out of power gracelessly), when I reopened it to that same save point it immediately caught fire again. Still nothing but troglodyte body parts there. (No dralthas.)

Encountered this same issue in the latest version of the steam release (50.03?)
The surface refuse pile spontaneously ignites on start, with the culprit being a stray llama rear leg with the only nearby creature being a dog.

I've had other behaviour of cavern corpses teleporting to my corpse piles despite not having a path to the caverns at all; you'll notice a bunch of antperson bodies on level 32 that I never actually collected. Seemed to occur when the corpses were burned to ash.

Could be the up-warping old corpse of a fire-based FB who fell into magma when it died?
