0000360: Melted chunks of ice turn into a water item instead of 1/7 water
If you take a chunk of ice left behind by mining through ice and leave it somewhere to melt, instead of covering the floor with 1/7 depth water as if you'd dumped a bucket of water there, it forms a water object which doesn't leave behind any mud.
1) Embark on a glacier.
2) Dig down to the stone layer using ramps.
3) Designate a garbage dump in a Z level which is made of stone.
4) Designate the chunks of ice for dumping.
5) Wait for the dumped ice to melt.
No tags attached.

I might add that I did all that on my own to get some mud, but none of the dwarves actually went to dump the ice so I was going to report that ice dumping might be broken.

It seems that it wasn't.

Additionally, walls of ice don't seem to melt any more. Thus, the good old method "build an ice wall @ wait for spring" to get mud is no more.
