0001723: Dwarves fail to move prepared meals from one stockpile to another
I have set up a main stockpile for prepared meals, with no barrels allowed. Attempting to have smaller secondary stockpiles (for outposts) use the "take from stockpile" option results in dwarves constantly picking up & setting down prepared meals, but never moving them. I have not been able to consistently reproduce this behavior across all games.
Create food stockpile A that only allows prepared meals with no barrels
Accumulate prepared meals in stockpile A
Create food stockpile B that only allows prepared meals with no barrels
Set Stockpile B to take from Stockpile A
Watch as dwarves "dance" on Stockpile A, picking up & setting down prepared meals, but never transferring them to Stockpile B
No tags attached.

This is a general problem with "Take from stockpile" -- see 0000086.
