Items on Ground overflow

Hi!  I've been playing for a while now and have had quite a bit of progress.  So much so, that I've encountered having too many items in one location.  Recently I encountered a bug where I had the items screen littered with items and I dropped a backpack (so that I could switch to my rifle to take out an enemy) and when I returned to the item screen, the backpack was gone.  I understand that if there are too many items, you risk losing something, but the real bug seemed to happen when I searched the area again.  I found soup cans filled with stuff and worth thousands of dollars.  I picked them up, sold them and now my character has $300,000,000 :P  I'm not sure how to get around something like this, but thought I'd alert you.  Maybe make it so you can't drop something?  Or maybe if it's on the craft screen and you perform more actions, it stays there?

I encountered the same thing in the demo, is this bug present in the beta?

I'm playing the Beta, yes.

Hm, sounds like the game tried to place the item on the ground but gave up and lost it. Normally, it should just get stuck to the cursor to give you a chance to find a home for it, so maybe there's a bug in the way some situations are handled. I'll take a look!Also, it sounds like you ran into a bug with negative stack counts, which often wrap-around to really high numbers (with correspondingly large prices). I haven't been able to make that happen yet, but once I do, I should be able to fix it as well. Thanks!

After some more playing, I think I caused it specifically by putting something in the Crafting box.  It makes sense that you can't store something there, but I would have expected it to return to the ground or my inventory since I didn't move from the space.
