There was discussion a long time ago about this problem,
and I believe the concensus at the time was to create an
ITEM_NEWBIE flag, so that when such items were dropped
(for whatever reason, be it the player quits, or
intentionally drops it, tries to donate it, or whatever),
the item is automatically junked.
Easy to imp, and takes care of this very annoying problem.
