No XP awarded for smelting cactus
On Feb 6, 2023
When removing ore, stone, [baked] potatoes, or ingots from a furnace or blast furnace, the player is awarded with the proper amount of XP.
So the issue seems cactus-specific -- although, admittedly, I did not test every single smeltable item in the game. ;)
