Just tested this out in-game. I was not able to reproduce your report. The full ox pack did return my overflow items.

However, it should be noted that there is a 4-second delay between the "full" message and when the item makes it back into your inventory. It's been a while, but I think this was instituted quite some time ago to prevent an inventory conflict when the item was returned instantaneously. If one's inventory is full (or almost full with unusable spaces for the size of item being moved), the way NWN handled the transfer caused it to try to put the item back into one's inventory before it was fully "removed" by the engine. This caused the item to be dropped on the ground and often lost.

At least that's what I seem to remember. I may not be right about it, however I did time the delay and it is indeed 4 seconds. As well, it usually does not return the item to the same space in inventory but rather the first available space of the correct size.

If the item is not returned to you I can pretty much guarantee it's still on your ox and you have gotten away with placing more than 40 items on it.
