0009236: Seige either lock at edge of screen or flees immediately
Every siege I have gotten has some movement when I unpause. It seems they always flee immediately. Most of the time a few of the siegers will become stuck on the edge of the screen.
Any siege should do it. Hopefully you have a shortcut to make one happen. Although it might be specific to the conditions I have in my world.
No tags attached.

I have also seen a single siege do both. On that particular occasion, based on the number and types of goblins that were standing at the edge when the siege appeared I would guess 3 squads arrived but were not all on the map. My guess at there being 3 squads was that there were 3 non-archer types. Most of those left and some other goblins entered. In the end I had 7 goblin archers sit on the map for a season. After the siege ended 2 goblins stayed, still standing in the same place. Those 2 took pot shots at passing wildlife but never moved.

The recent changes to fix invaders in 42.03 did not affect this bug. I still see the same behaviors as previously reported.

Here is two 43.05 ascii savegames just three days before the Siege announcement, both showing a siege enter and leave the map immediately, with a minimal difference: http://dffd.bay12games.com/file.php?id=13153 [^]
