0005939: Dwarves do not put empty bags into minecart, instead drop them on the same tile
I have furniture stockpile accepting boxes and bags and it is full of empty bags. Also I have a minecart route where the first stop is taking from the bags stockpile and the second stop drops them into another furniture stockpile.

I noticed that one dwarf apparently puts all the bags into the minecart, then moves them all back to the stockpile again, then repeats. Upon examination I noticed that he in fact doesn't put the bags into the minecart but drops them on the tile where minecart and the track stop are.
It seems to happen only to empty bags - the dwarf filled the minecart with gypsum plaster bags just fine, but haven't put a single empty bag into the minecart yet.

The track and hauling route is proven functional, with gypsum plaster bags it transported them fine.
bag, hauling, minecart, Save Included

Here I made a minimalist save demonstrating the bug in DF v0.34.10:

Just load it and watch.
Gypsum plaster bags are put inside the minecart while empty bags are not.
Then empty bags are hauled back to the stockpile and the process repeats.

After some more testing it seems the bug is limited to empty bags only.
It doesn't happen with other containers such as empty bins or barrels.
