0004224: Adv Mode [r]emove always places items in grasps, allows wielding them all simultaneously
When you use the "remove item" command that item is automatically placed into "hand slot" even if it's holds anything already. Sometimes it's handy, but...

Seems that affects weapon in some way, in particular, shooting from crossbow causes a message "you have nothing left to fire".
1. Take something in both hands.
2. Remove your armor, clothes or any item from containers.
3. Repeat second step.
4. ?????
5. You can hold it all in your hands!
Very old feature, I guess, .40d18 contains it too, but I couldn't find it in the list, so.

This dates back to even the 2D versions, so it's probably safe to bet that it's always been this way.
