If my adventurer drinks one unit of water from the stack of three in the waterskin (all standard starting equipment), then refills the waterskin, the contents become water[2] plus water[600]. Or water plus water[1200] if refilling after drinking twice. The waterskin cannot be refilled unless it contains less than three units, so it is not possible to get water[600] plus water[1200].

If the waterskin is emptied on the ground, then water is picked up from the ground into the backpack to be transferred into the waterskin, I can get three (and only three) individual water into the waterskin as a workaround.

Dumping a unit of water from the backpack dumps the entire contents of the backpack, and might be a different bug if no-one's found that yet.

Also, the water is sellable to towns for 1* each, so you can buy armour really easily if you are a human

Is this bug still present in 0.34.02? If so, please upload a save to http://dffd.wimbli.com/ [^] and post the link here. Also, what materials are the waterskins made from?

In 0.34.02 filling waterskin works as it should: 3 units of water max.

Thanks for reporting back! I was never able to reproduce this in 0.31.25 either, but I guess we'll call it gone.
