I found that a bit strange as well, but when you're a newbie, the goods
that you're getting from the corpse really aren't all that important
(other than the gold). So long as the imm has setup newbie stuff for
people to start with, the leather bracer in the corpse isn't too vital.

I don't remember what the stock time is on corpse-rot, but for me it's 5
ticks. Five minutes should be plenty of time for someone to get the stuff
from the corpse before it gets extracted.
