0005459: Dead inoperable tiles created when carving ice
I took the opportunity to build a moat around my tower when the river froze... however, a handful of tiles at one corner became ... void. Nothing was there; water would not fill them in... nothing could be done with them.
Well, not sure... I carved channels into a frozen river; put down rock floor initially, but tore them out in favor of deepening the moat another z-level... and which point a handful of consecutive tiles became null.
I have a save game (zipped) demonstrating this (it contains a couple bits of unique content (extra type of metal, smelter, a few extra words, creature graphics) but is otherwise the same as default content. Not seeing immediately where to upload the file, though
No tags attached.

Does 0001981 describe what you're seeing?

Yes, yes it does... i did a tentative search for ice first, but didn't see that one. Total dupe. Can still supply a save game if needed and I know where to upload it
