Summary 0008354: Taking off boots of flying while over lava/deep water is harmless
Description  Take off which item? (? for menu, Esc to quit)
_Really remove this item over lava?
 You start removing your armour.
_You continue taking off your +0 pair of boots of flying.
_You finish taking off your +0 pair of boots of flying.

And then nothing happens. Same for deep water.

You're unable to move over other lava/deep water while not flying, but no harm comes to you from being in hazardous terrain without a source of flight. You just sort of... hang out.

Some more information:

I doesn't work for a ring of flight's effect expiring. This has only been observed for boots. If Flight expires while you're in Wiz mode you get asked if you want to die. Entering "N" gives the same "trapped-on-all-sides" effect as the boots of flying always do.

If you try to transform while you're trapped in the middle of lava, then you get told you'd burn up if it's a form that cannot survive over lava but will be allowed to transform if the form can survive.

This may be related to the potion of treeform interactions kilobyte fixed when the potion was first added. The "trapped by lava but unharmed" effect is similar.

I don't believe this is related to treeform; as far as I can tell, this problem dates back before the removal of levitation. For some reason, people just didn't expect lava to be harmless...

Patch attached.

I realized that lava orcs weren't handled correctly by this patch. (Technically, they weren't handled correctly before, either...)

Supplementary patch attached.
