0002406: Unmovable items
There are some items in my save that I simply can't move/haul/drop, even when they are claimed / droped.

Here is an example: http://dffd.wimbli.com/file.php?id=2557 [^]

There is a rock just to the left of the 3 bridges sequence, on the tile north of the downstairs.

Initially I tried to build a downstairs under it, but the task was cancelled because the dwarves could not move the stone. I made sure that it was not forbidden. There is no restriction to this type of stone in the stocks menu and the "orders" (o) seem to be in order. I can't even dump it. I noticed this with other items in this same save.
No tags attached.

You mentioned in another report that links to the same save that this was a reclaim. Reclaiming is known to cause items that were tasked for something at the time of abandonment (or loss) of the fort to be completely untouchable after you reclaim. That is likely the problem.

Malicus is correct -- this is bug 0000863.
