0008843: Hives in Bins not available to be placed
Built 10 hives of various types of wood. The hives were placed in the finished goods stockpile which had bins enabled. 8 of the hives were placed in the bins, 2 were left in the stockpile. The 2 in the stockpile were accessible, the 8 in the bins were not(after placing the first 2, I got 'needs hives' when trying to place more).
Make bins, make hives, make finished good stockpile with bins enabled. Wait for hives to be placed in bins, then attempt to place hives.
After changing the number of bins on the stockpile settings to 0, I was able to place the hives that were still in bins. Setting the number of bins higher than 0 made the hives unavailable again.
No tags attached.

Sounds related to 0008755, "Items in bins (coins, thread) are sometimes not found for tasks" and other "can't use items in bins" reports.

Reminder sent to: HighSorcerer

Do you know if the hives were in bins that were tasked to go pick up other finished goods? Are you able to provide a save showing this? If so, please compress (.zip) your DF/data/save/region folder, upload it to http://dffd.bay12games.com, [^] and post a link to it here.
