Moving topics with votes to non-voting category doesn't release votes

It appears that when a topic with votes is moved to another category, where voting is not enabled, the votes are not being returned to the owners. Is this a bug or an intended behaviour?

Additionally, there are edge cases where closing a topic doesn’t automatically return the votes to the user.

thank you for your time!

I’ve just tested this on my local development site and can confirm that votes are not being returned to the user when a topic is moved to a category that does not allow for votes. This doesn’t seem ideal to me, but I’m not sure if it’s the intended behaviour or not. The only alternative I can think of is that if a topic is moved to a category that does not allow voting, all votes should be removed from the topic. There would be potential issues with this approach as well.

If you know of any specific ways of reproducing the edge cases, let us know. I can look into this some more next week.
