0005830: Webs from Giant Cave Spider floating in the air.
When a Forgotten Beast flew over my fortress walls, my pet Giant Cave Spider shot webs at him. Some of the webs are at ground level, z0, but others are at z+1 and z+2. They don't move; they just sit there in the air with no support below them -- no trees, statues, or other objects.
Get a GCS to fire webs at a flying creature.
I set severity to major because it seems to be preventing my weaver from collecting thread. He spams he can't find a path. My caverns are all accessible and have lots of webs, but he won't collect thread from the caverns or even collect the webs on ground level.
No tags attached.

In the 'Additional Information' section. I meant to say 'collect webs' not 'collect thread.'
