Win_x64_0.7.91: Floating loot pile above pedestal in Orsinium

I tried to search for this but the "Search..." feature ignores the word "floating" when I search "floating" or "floating loot".

In the save, there's a loot pile floating above the pedestal in the middle of this room in the Orsinium.

I was about to say it's a game-data related issue, since it happens all over the place and is something that may find a workaround in mods, but this one seems actually correctly placed in Daggerfall classic:

Even though it appears that way in classic, it's odd to have a floating pile. My guess is that there is an offset variable for other piles that also affects this pile.

This one is definitely more pronounced in DFU.

Loot containers such as this one receive an alignment step that takes a best-effort approach at aligning with surface below. The alignment logic is probably hitting an edge case that causes it to push upwards a bit instead. I'll take a look when I can.
