So in my current embark I havent found any Iron yet, and im guessing I wont find any. So I traded all of my gems for some Pig Iron bars (since I have Flux Stone) and Steel/Iron Armor. I had the items equipped to my military after trading and not long after noticed that the items were missing along with everything I traded.

What is happening and how do I prevent it from happening in the future? This seems to happen everytime I trade and havent really had solid proof till now.

sorry, bad cropping job on my part, if you zoom in on the page you can see it better. The picture just shows how it says missing item – Paralytic Nov 10 '12 at 21:57
Never had anything like that happen to me. Probably a new bug. – kotekzot Nov 10 '12 at 22:05
Are you using any mods, and have any dwarves died? – Raven Dreamer Nov 10 '12 at 22:40
@RavenDreamer im using lazynewbpack and 2 dwarves died but before this happened – Paralytic Nov 10 '12 at 22:45
@Paralytic I meant other than graphics mods. Phoebus (from lazynewbpack) shouldn't affect things. I'm not sure; I've never seen something like this. – Raven Dreamer Nov 10 '12 at 22:49

I found out the problem was that I had been offering my items away as gifts and not actually trading. So naturally before the merchants left i would attempt to equipped the steel armor I purchased and when the merchants left the item would be "missing".
