0005923: De-assigned minecarts aren't freed up
I made a minecart route and assigned a minecart to it. The dwarfs placed the minecart there, ready to go. Later, I unassigned that minecart from the route. The dwarfs did not put the minecart back into the stockpile, instead just leaving it on the track stop. They refused to move it when I designated it for dumping as well. They still would not move it even after deleting the route entirely.
1. Craft a minecart
2. Build a track+track stop
3. Create a route, and assign the minecart to it
4. Unassign the minecart, or assign a different one.
No tags attached.

Do you have a save? I couldn't get this to reproduce.

Nevermind -- my setup was off. I think I've fixed this one now, as well as another bug where they'd store stopped carts that weren't on tracks even if they were assigned properly.
