See pooping. No, seriously. There's a real usage there unaffiliated with evacuation of any type.

We know, we know. In Poop Sleuth we trust.
Here it is, eliminating (ha!) the necessity (ha ha!) of having to click on that filthy word:
"Pooping, or, A Pooping Sea, implies the breaking of the sea over the taffrail on the poop deck. When the sea is so turbulent as to break in the stern-sashes, &c. it is also called a pooping sea."
—Falconer's New Universal Dictionary of the Marine (1816), 350
I'm not making this up.
