Summary0010762: "fortressintro" message always says Spring, even though it's no longer guaranteed
You have arrived. After a journey from the Mountainhomes into the
forbidding wilderness beyond, your harsh trek has finally
ended. Your party of seven is to make an
outpost for the glory of all of [civilization].

There are almost no supplies left, but with stout labor
comes sustenance. Whether by bolt, plow or hook, provide
for your dwarves. You are expecting a supply caravan just before
winter entombs you, but it is Spring now.
Enough time to delve secure lodgings, ere the [predators] get hungry.
A new chapter of dwarven history begins here at this place, [fortress name],
"[translated name]". Strike the earth!

Ever since Dwarf Fortress was first released, the "Fortress Intro" announcement has assumed that you always embark during Spring. Since version 0.40.01, however, this is no longer the case - your very first embark within a given world will certainly be in Spring, but your next one could easily be in Summer, Autumn, or even Winter.
Steps To Reproduce1. Generate a new world
2. Advance time by several months
3. Create a new Fortress in the world
4. Observe that the intro text says it's Spring, even though it isn't

On a side note, this bug tracker apparently doesn't recognize the "<blockquote>" HTML tag (and it conveniently lacks a Preview option which I could've otherwise used to figure that out in advance).
