why doesn't greenstone amulet drop from swords anymore?

in pre-ee versions you could obtain a greenstone amulet, needed against illithids by killing a magic sword, summoned by lvl7 wizard spell. in ee version this stopped working and i was wondering why. maybe somebody knows?
Immunity items, in general, can't be dropped. You don't expect to kill a zombie and get a ring or amulet that grants undead immunities. The same is true for the sword's psionic immunity item. It's granting abilities which should be innate properties of the sword, but aren't because the game engine doesn't work that way. And now, things work the way they should.
Another nugget from the data, that you keep digging up for us. I truly appreciate the effort and time you put into this - it is valued even if we dont mention it enough.
