Couldn't find the IRC talk atm; but changing to FR since unstore_unit never behaved this way AFAICT and I don't think that it is unintentionally.
Furthermore, it may not be a good idea to do it this way. Imagine debugging-situations where you would possible have your gui blocked by repeated advancement choice dialogs. Thais could also be useful for other cases however, so perhaps a recursive= (def no) parameter ?

It was reported here: http://forums.wesnoth.org/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=36292#p522605
that, if a unit with enough experience to advance twice or more is unstored, [unstore_unit] can fire the advancement only once.
With my basic C++ knowledge, I found that the following patch (that I'm copypasting, as it's just a line) enables [unstore_unit] to advance units until they no longer have enough XP to do so.

However, as I'm not a real C++ coder, I'm assigning this patch to fendrin, as we agreed on IRC.
