Cannot setPos or deleteVehicle on dead units which were in a vehicle when they died.
New, NormalPublic

Description

I am trying to write a clean up script, but I ran into an issue: I cannot {deleteVehicle _unit;} on units that have died in a vehicle.
I tried {_unit setpos (getpos _unit);}, but this did not work as well.

This never happens when the units are killed via script. And only sometimes happens when they are shot.

Steps To Reproduce
  1. Shoot a unit that is in a vehicle. (You MUST shoot him, otherwise this bug will not work)
  2. Kill the unit by SHOOTING him.
  3. Try to delete the unit. {deleteVehicle _x}count allDeadMen (Seems to work ~75% of the time)

Here is the reproduction mission : http://arma3.faith/issue1.Tanoa.pbo
Here is a video of the reproduction : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TJNRNCYHcew

Additional Information

Remember, this only works if you shoot the unit, so don't try to {_unit setDamage 1}.
Remember, this only worked ~ 75 % of the time, on the reproduction mission, shooting all the units (24) will give you a positive end result 100% of the time.
