0005089: Re-raised (flaming?) corpses in tomb instantly bleed to death
While fighting a mummy ranger as a dragon adventurer, I used fire breath on an entire room full of mutilated animated corpses and skeletons. Now whenever the mummy attempts to re-raise her followers (every few moments) it produces a very long message spam of "The human mutilated corpse (and etc.) has bled to death."
Play an adventurer (possibly a dragon)
Light a lot of animated dead on fire (possibly with dragonfire)
Kill them in the presence of a mummy (possibly other necromantics too)
Watch the mummy try to resurrect them only to have them all instantly bleed to death

Apologies that it's so difficult to tell what's going on, what with all the smoke from burning corpses.

On further fighting, it seems like this is happening to the majority of mummy-raised undead, not even ones that were set on fire. I do appreciate it keeping them from infinitely mobbing me, it's just strange to see a long-dead corpse bleed to death.

It also happened once with a rabbit which I killed before fighting a mummy; the mummy couldn't raise the rabbit at all, it would just bleed to death every time, even though it had never been raised before.

The same thing happens with necromancers - if something bleeds to death, they'll attempt to raise it, but it'll just instantly bleed to death.
