0003520: POPULATION_CAP setting in d_init.txt is not respected by migrants when set from 0-7
Migrants still come to the fortress above and beyond the POPULATION_CAP setting in d_init.txt, which appears to be in violation of the function of this setting.
Set POPULATION_CAP to any value between 0-7. Wait for migrants to show up.
No tags attached.

Yes, I have experienced the same thing. I was still getting migrants when my fort had around 200 dorfs, when the pop cap was set to 150.

The main bug is a duplicate of 0000643, just with even more varied conditions under which it can reproduce.

The comment you have, Heinzy, is covered in 0002922.
