0002283: Adventurer can drop a crutch in a number of ways that don't remove the crutch-walking status
Adventurers who pick up a crutch are flagged as being crutch-walking until they have dropped the crutch while holding it in a hand. It is possible to lose the crutch by other means, such as throwing it, or putting it in a bag and then dropping it, but the crutch-walking status persists even though the adventurer no longer possesses a crutch. Specifically, movement speed is drastically reduced and the adventurer gains crutch-walking experience by moving. This persists until the adventurer picks up a crutch with a hand and drops it.
Create a pocket island, embark next to a generated fort, bring nothing but crutches, abandon, create an adventurer, go to the site, pick up a crutch, throw it.
Present in 0.31.04 and 0.31.06. In a non-reproducible case I wasn't able to get rid of the status by any means.
