0001464: Dwarves fail to store ballista bolts in siege ammo stockpile.
I have a stockpile, I have dwarves, I have ballista bolts, and they are not in the stockpile.
Make a stockpile that accepts siege ammo only, and make some siege ammo.
No tags attached.

I too am having this problem. The strange thing is, it didn't start for me until I upgraded from 0.31.03 to 0.31.04.

Noticed this when I went to customize a siege ammo stockpile near a ballista battery. If I forbid all items in the stockpile, then go to add "siege ammo", the "Type" remains disabled rather than becoming half-lit. This also happens with "ballista parts". Any of the other type values seem to work fine. This is with 0.31.12

I was able to make a ballista bolt stockpile in 0.31.12 just now.

If I forbid all items in the stockpile, then just enable "siege ammo," the material types remain all forbidden. You have to enable all the material types/qualities, then disable the non-siege-ammo objects.

The "Type" field is not highlighted. And if you exit the stockpile settings screen and then return, "siege ammo" is no longer selected, and dwarves won't haul bolts to the pile unless/until you reselect it.
