0010199: Duplicate point on route causes dwarven loop?
I'm seeing an effect that I think is a bug -- I have a route that looks something like..

A B C D E F G H I E J K L M ...

It *seems* like when my dwarves got to E, they continuously looped between I and E. If it matters (I doubt it) F G H I were on another Z level.

Deleting the first E from the route seemed to clear it up immediately.

I'm wondering if the implementation has an assumption about duplicate points never happening.
See description -- but I haven't had a chance to try to reproduce again.
No tags attached.

I was unable to reproduce this. I created a simple figure-8 track, placed two route stops on the central junction, and watched dwarves guide a cart around the track without issue. Please upload a save to DFFD ( http://dffd.bay12games.com/ [^] ) and link it here.
