0002357: No kill credit for undead "collapsed" kills
When I kill, say, a skeletal tigerman, it gives the text "The Skeletal Tigerman has collapsed." This kill via collapsing is not awarded to me or to the weapon used to cause the collapse. Some undead kills are awarded to me, however: whenever I cut off a head, for instance. Most, however, aren't.
1. Go to arena mode
2. Create a powerful creature (say, a giant) equipped with a sword.
3. Create a weak zombie creature (zombie tigerman)
4. Assume control of the strong creature and kill the zombie.
5. Check your list of kills, and the weapon's list of kills.
No tags attached.

Is this also related to skeletal kills not leaving corpses? I'm not 100% sure if it's the intended result, but I would expect that destroying a skeletal creature would still leave an actual skeleton corpse, which does not seem to be the case in .18.

There haven't been collapse kills for a while, so I'm closing this one.
