0004705: Trade depot stealing (bug?)
I found out that you can steal the caravans cargo, if you demolish your trade depot. They don't fight back, they just stand and looking around, then they ignore everything about their goods and leave again. Few months later, when they come back, you can do it again.
1) Build a trade depot with (any) materials. (I tested it with claystones)
2) Wait for the caravans.
3) If they are here, let them unload their goods.
4) Demolish your trade depot.
5) Let your dwarves steal their stuff, while they do nothing.
6) They'll leave, then some few months again, they'll come back again.

I don't remember the product version, so I just took 0.31.25, it could be 0.31.24 but I'm not sure.
