0005267: Copper coins pass through this boar when thrown at it.
I was walking through normal wilderness at night when a badger sow became enraged and began chasing me. I decided to fight it, threw a copper coin at it, and the coin passed through rather than dealing damage. However, a regular strike with my axe dealt damage as normal.

Here's a cleaned up log:

"The Badger Sow has become enraged!
The spinning Kasatdur Istrul Othlakamloc silver coin strikes The Badger Sow in the upper body, but the attack passes right through!

You hack The Badger Sow in the upper body with your bronze battle axe, tearing apart the muscle and tearing apart the liver!
An artery has been opened by the attack!

The spinning Kasatdur Istrul Othlakamloc copper coin strikes The Badger Sow in the left front leg, but the attack passes right through!
The Badger Sow misses You!"
Here's the save: http://dffd.wimbli.com/file.php?id=5588 [^]

Using the save I linked to, throw a coin from from the first stack of copper coins (about 3-5 copper coins) you come to in the inventory at the enraged boar that is visible.
It seems that this is the same issue as the one discussed here: http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/mantisbt/view.php?id=787 [^]

Hopefully the save will allow this issue to be worked out.
No tags attached.
