0006913: Un-retiring leads to dwarves being prisoners of the hidden parts of the map.
I reclaimed a fort lost by my civilization during worldgen, and retired it shortly after.

I then un-retired it, only to find half of my dwarves spawned in the obscured parts of the fortress (parts that I had explored before retirement), and could not do anything (not even move), causing job cancellation spam. The parts stayed obscured, and the blocked dwarves were freed only when non-blocked dwarves un-obscured their zones by visiting them.
1 - Reclaim a fort lost during worldgen
2 - Retire the aforesaid fort
3 - Un-retire the aforementioned fort
4 - Look for your dwarves
I also noticed a massive FPS drop right after un-retirement, despite the fact that the fort contained a ridiculously small amount of items and creatures.
No tags attached.

Happened across this one myself... it's quite the game-breaker.

Suggestion: disable the obscuring of the fortress after the unretiring. This is the cause of the extremely low performance after unretiring and it is breaking this new feature.

Step 1 is not required to replicate. Can be done with any fortress that has long exploratory tunnels that dwarves can be lost in.
