Already reported a thousand times.
Since 18.104.22.168 the SERVERS are able to desactivate this option through a config option.

Yes, it's a feature (crackhead game designers for the win).
So now they added an additional feature to make it configurable, but since about 0.00001% of all DayZ server owners have even the vaguest clue how their server config works (required build, anyone?), don't get your hopes up that it will ever become a reliable thing to swim.

93965 only applies the mission setting for no dropping items to the server, not a client (BI BUG)
So even if you edit your mission file and set the setting for items not to drop, they will still drop.
Wait for newer arma2 beta
