Summary0010892: Squad members sent on missions forget to drop job items
DescriptionI sent a squad on a mission and noticed that one of the squad members was lagging behind the others. It turns out that the order to join the mission happened while he was carrying a rock, so he dutifully took the rock with him on a mission.
Steps To ReproduceSend someone on a mission while they are carrying rocks.

It's probably the same reason they bring whatever they were carrying (often a rock...) when stationed, or when the expedition leader/mayor is called upon for a meeting, or (infuriatingly) when a civ alert is enabled. Seeing your cavern wall making squad try to save the precious rocks (by carry them BACK to the fortress) when fleeing an FB isn't exactly fun.

One workaround is to always keep the squad active, and have small armor and weapon stockpiles in the barracks to minimize time spend hauling loot.
