Killing Ancient Stone Beast while it's in a wall doesn't generate Corpse or Orb
Killed guardian of Earth Temple while it was in a wall space. Couldn't find Orb (or Corpse) anywhere, even after mining where he'd died.

Pretty much what it says in the title. My companion, a Stone Giant Lord, did the killing blow on the Ancient Stone Beast while the Beast happened to be passing through a stone wall (or standing in a wall, however you'd like to consider it.) It didn't give any messages other than the monster's death. Looking around, I never found the items I would have expected: the corpse and the Chaos Orb of Elemental Earth. I had a back-up save so I investigated further. Killing the Beast myself or letting my companion get the final blow didn't seem to make a difference; if the Beast was in a stone wall, no drops, and if it wasn't the drops appear just like normal. Also, mining or Wand of Digging into the space didn't help me locate the items. I'm wanting to say they didn't get generated, but, well, has anyone else seen this? Or can replicate it? I have a save file of Ted the Human Farmer about to kill the Beast, so it should be easy enough to demonstrate what I am seeing.

Please upload the save game. There already is a function in ADOM which should prevent exactly this case, maybe it isn't working correctly.

As we haven't received a save game by now and I am totally unable to reproduce this I'll close the bug for now as unreproducable. Sorry.

Sorry! Didn't see the updates to this thread till just now. Uploading...

The attached save file is Ted, the human farmer, just about to finish off the Ancient Stone Beast. For convenience, I saved it where the Beast was in a wall and nearly dead from melee attacks. My companion (from a scroll of familiar summoning) is off in another room on the same level so he doesn't interfere with where the Beast dies.
