Z+Angband all shops out of stock

I'm playing a bit of Z+Angband. Tried a hobbit ranger and noticed all the shops were empty at the start. I went into the dungeon and when I came back the '1' shop was open (but didn't have arrows). I've visited other towns and they were all empty too.

Very problematic once I've run out of Arrows. Without a source of phase door and more ammo I don't see how I can get a character like this off the ground.

Is there some kind "Ammo Creation" like in in ToME2 that I'm mising?

Any explaination on what is going on?

That's weird. The only thing I can think of is that you accidentally turned on an ironman option that forces the shops to be useless. It's been ages since I played Z+ but I don't remember it doing anything special to the stores.

Unless I accidentally pressed some control character, I haven't changed any options. Just checked them, all the ironman_ options are still off.
Trying a different character (Beastman Warrior) and seeing the same thing.
The same save file had several mages previously where everything was ok.

Edit: Race/Class of character does not matter, shops all start empty. But it does seem specific to the save file. If I start a new save file I do not get that issue. Guess that'll be my way forward. Still strange, no idea what I did.

Edit 2: So the new character just died and the re-use of that save file now has the same issue

Edit 3: Definitely something to do with restarting an old save file. New files always work. If I sell something to the empty shop, and then buy it back the shop will restock. Hopefully others will over time.
