0000161: Vermin corpses/remains do not decay/rot
Corpses of small animals like Toads, Turtles, Rats, Fireflies and some birds do not decay. At first, they was just lying all aver the ground, I've set to gather refuse from outside and get all the corpses to the stockpile. A few months later I've noticed, that remains do not rot, no miasma appears and all corpses just lying in the storage. Also, two dwarves died and they are not decaying too, but the produce miasma.

It's like 0000022, I think, but in any case, it should be fixed for 0.31.04 to the extent that the remains disappear after a time. It doesn't make them rot specifically when they weren't rotting before, since there are some annoyances there.
