0000237: Dwarfs Starve Trying to Eat Trader's Food
I managed to have a lot of trade with the caravans without any issue. Then I noticed the trader's never finished unloading their goods... and then that dwarfs were hovering over the food with 'Eat' as their task, canceling since the item wasn't accessible, then trying again. They just hover like that as they starve. Usually this doesn't snare too many dwarves in it's clutches, but I figured unresolvable dwarf death (forbidding the items doesn't seem to help) is a Major bug

Do we have any other occurrences of this? This bug was submitted back in 0.31.01 so it may have been resolved as part of the pathfinding bug or something else if it was a once only problem.

Yea. I've never seen it happen in later versions. I think we can proclaim it fixed?
