0004470: Patients in traction don't get released unless bench is deconstructed
When a dwarf has an overlapping fracture, he is put in a traction bench. After he heals, he will remain in the traction bench; no one will come and release him. To release him, you must deconstruct the table he is on, and immediately afterwards he walks out the hospital.
Cause an overlapping fracture. Tend to the dwarf. He will be put in traction, he will heal, and he won't be released.
This is incredibly minor, seeming there is a working workaround.

I'll do that first :)

The hospital is one level above F3 hotkey. The dwarf doesn't have a fracture mentioned in the health screen and after bench desconstruction he happily went to "Clean Self" (I didn't advance the game further so don't know whether he will have any problems).

same problem here. After a few month in hospital my dwarf shows up as healed on every status screen, but he keeps on resting in the traction bench.

I can deliver a save game if wished.

same problem, same version (.25). Also have save if needed.

This may be fixed in 0.34.11 (or somewhere during 0.34.x). My dwarves who are in traction receive many, many diagnoses during their stay (as often as once a day sometimes). And I have seen dwarves leave traction without my intervention.

Of course, this doesn't mean the bug is completely gone.
