Experimental 0.C 3250 cutting up items bug

I came across the body of one of my characters and attempted to cut up several pieces of his equipment which I didn’t need, one of the items was a pair of combat boot with a knife in it. When trying to cut up this item the debug switched on and threw the message “DEBUG: tried to cut a non-empty item |\ pair of combat boots, full (fits) press spacebar” pressing space bar does nothing except make the screen flicker, which I assume means the debug message is being spammed at me.
