I confirm this issue is still around in 1.13.1+dev, but honestly I don't think it's that bad. Even when I first started playing Wesnoth back in 1.4.x and was playing Heir to the Throne, this glitch didn't stick out in my mind at all. True, it might be ideal to have the item hidden behind the unit in question... but on the other hand, I find it's probably useful to have the item still visible on the off chance one chooses not to pick up the item with the first unit that contacts it.

Given the technical effort it would take to resolve this, I think this one can be left alone. Would be nice to fix, but not really essential.

this one is very very tricky to fix

the problem is that units in water are "half transparent", so we need a way to tell the item how much of itself should be transparent, which breaks the current design badly

no idea how to fix that one...

When a unit stands in for example water and there's an [item] on that hex, the item image will show through the half-transparent submerged part of the unit. Instead, the item should obviously always remain behind the unit regardless of submersion.

Easy to test in Bay of Pearls in HttT: just take a mermen to the storm trident and don't pick it up.
