0000421: The stockpile 'take from a pile' is broken
I have two stone stockpiles, one closer to my workshops and one closer to a recently dug out source of stone. I designated the first stockpile to take from the second. Whenever there are spots open on the first stockpile, the dwarves run over to the second stockpile and pick up a stone, as expected. But, then they immediately drop it back into the same spot. This continues indefinately, causing a large group of what would be idlers to cluster around in this area doing no meaningful work.

I also tried it with two gem stockpiles with no types of gem forbidden, and the same effects were noticed.
Make two stockpiles that contain the same types of items, then designate one of those stockpiles to take from the other.
