Quickly verified using a pair of wood stockpiles. The dwarves will move to the object, think about it for a few frames, and then cancel the job without moving the object. They will do this repeatedly, so setting take from stockpile not only doesn't work, it wastes labor like crazy.

Confirmed, they juste dance around the stockpile, as if once there they thought their mission complete.
Moreover, if you set a stockpile to take from 2 different stockpiles, dwarves will dance between the two stockpiles, without doing anything

Confirmed with a seed stockpile taking from a main food stockpile.

Dwarves will move barrels correctly using take-from (tested with food barrels).
Other stuff is broken.

I didn't test with food barrels, but this issue was apparent when moving empty barrels between 2 or more piles.

I don't believe it's completely correct to say they do nothing. When I looked at this problem step-by-step, they actually do pick up the item (logs in my case) for at least one frame.

Observed with furniture and wood stockpiles, food seems to work at least some of the time.

Confirmed with Stones and Food barrels.
With the order "Take from another pile", dwarves start dancing around.

I've had dwarves move meat with take from stockpile. I've also had them move booze and plants. The meat and plants may have been by barrel. However, cooked meals (which i never put in barrels) lead to a dwarf picking up one serving and then dropping it, repeatedly.

it also happens with seeds

In addition the dwarves also don't seem to recognize some items in stockpiles for jobs. They utterly refused to get bituminous coal out of a stockpile to be smelted into coke. It was not forbidden and the stockpile was directly next to the smelter. Eventually I mined some more and they used that (when they pathed at all).

I only have tried this with refuse stockpiles, but in any case I got the same behaviour.

It seems like dwarves don't like taking stuff from stockpiles much at all right now. I had a caravan come, I bought about 600 sea nettle jellyfish (It was dirt cheap, okay?) and it was all moved into my food stockpile, filling it totally. When I had enough barrels made to shift the stuff into, the dwarves just sat around the meeting hall and left it on the floor of the stockpile. I had to make smaller stockpiles and the dwarves would only put the jellyfish into barrels in the smaller stockpiles. These were default stockpiles, barrels not forbidden or in a burrow or etcetera.

My dwarves are doing the take from stockpile dance right now as well. They go out to the "take from" stockpile and run back to the "take to" stockpile. Problem is, they don't pick anything up! In my case, it is unprepared fish, which they are ordered to take to a stockpile near the fish processing workshop.

I'll make a copy of my save and keep it somewhere in case you guys want it.

This officially killed one of my dwarves. Due to the multiple mayor bug a mandate got made by a former mayor that didn't appear on the nobles screen, but the metalsmith wound up in violation of it and was sent to the stocks. I had a nice area set up with a restraint, bed, prepared foods stockpile and drink stockpile, but because it couldn't do a proper take from setup, the drinks weren't stocked fast enough and he died of thirst in a fortress with over 900 units of drinks. Without this working properly, the only way to manage item locations is with dump assignments or removing full stockpiles.

Taking from food stockpiles seems to work fine for me, taking from a furniture stockpile ends up with a bunch of dwarves walking back and forth going "?" endlessly.

Also confirmed. I had 2 wood stockpiles set up, they just wandered back and forth doing nothing.

This does not always happen, I just noticed in an older fort that I had set up several woodland collection stockpiles being taken from by a central pile.
All was being hauled wonderfully, until I decided to delete an outlying stockpile.
After that I noticed confused dwarfs collecting at the receiving pile.

In another fortress (see duplicate 0001392) it appeared to be caused by altering the allowed goods in involved piles, but I don't remember if I did not in fact delete a stockpile as well.

Taking food seems to work, but taking stone (i.e. Coal) results in the back-and-forth shuffle, where the dwarf goes to the source pile and then cancels the job repeatedly.

The jobs generated by this bug are apparently quite high priority; it took me several hours in .01 to figure out why I couldn't build a forge... the anvil was continuously tasked take-from stockpiles jobs.

This has been fixed for 0.31.07. At least my tests have checked out. There are a number of permutations, and on a long journey where a dwarf ends up cancelling the job by confused through pathing or whatever, they might end up returning the item. I didn't see that happen though.
