0007075: Cabinet and chest buildings "destroyed" when unretiring fortress, leaving unanchored cabinets
When one resumes fortress mode in a retired fortress, all the cabinet buildings cease to exist and are able to be replaced. Beds and doors are not affected.
1.) Reload a retired fortress with bedrooms previously equipped with cabinets.

2.) Hover the 'X' over a cabinet and press 't.' The cabinets are no longer buildings, and some may have moved.
The beds and doors seem to remain intact buildings.

Duplicate issue to ID 0007994. Footkerchief advised checking fort while retired in ADVMode to see if items are deconstructed, to determine whether issue occurs upon retiring or unretiring fort.

(copying my comment from duplicate report)

I can help with this. I posted a save/report at 0007636 which listed a large number of retiring oddities/bugs, among them:

- cabinets appear to have moved diagonally one tile diagonally downwards and to the left (even placing themselves inside doors or other objects)

As 0007994 notes, chests have the same problem. Also chests do not empty themselves when they come lose. This is easily seen by looking at what happens to hospital zones. The (full) chests cannot be built because they are not an 'empty container'.

Possibly the items can be hauled out of 'loose' chests, but you can also use dfhack autodump to empty them.

(Checking in DF 0.40.13)

Back in version 0.23, Chests and Cabinets were explicitly flagged to deconstruct during abandon (and place their contents inside the container item itself), while Weapon Racks and Armor Stands were flagged to scatter their contents (while remaining built) during reclaim; those flags (2 of 3 virtual methods specific to building_actualst) still appear to be present in the current version.

Presumably, the game is incorrectly performing Abandon-related operations during Retire.

This little (but annoying) bug is still with us in DF 0.40.24

I can confirm that the cabinets and chests are deconstructed on retire. When you visit the fortress then you find them move one tile from their original location.

Still happening on 44.09
And related very likely, the Route Stop (or the defined routes that use them) stop to function after unretiring (while they were working perfectly before retiring).

Removing/re-assigning minecarts does not fix
Only fix is to remove the Route Stops and rebuild them, i am unsure if it is needed to redo all the routes setup , as i usually redo them.
