Summary0005328: Ghosts can immigrate from past fortresses
DescriptionNot sure if this ghost came from A) my slaughtered settlements in a haunted region, or B) from my abandoned fortress that was half-dead of dehydration... but a ghost just showed up in my first immigrant wave.

It was definitely one of mine; it still had a nickname I'd given it.
Steps To ReproduceNo idea.
Additional InformationHe did the whole "flashing X immigrant" thing, then sat at the edge of the map. He shows up as "Other", not as one of my dwarves, AND also shows up as "Dead/Missing". I can't give him labors or anything out of the ordinary. He is wearing immigrant equipment, if that's weird.

Building a coffin (not a slab) caused him to claim it.

He was the ONLY immigrant in his wave, and after a full season, still hasn't gone away. The next immigrant wave entered through a different border and proceeded as normal.

I think that problem is "immigrant ghosts are broken" rather than "Ghosts can immigrate" (awesome!).

I can confirm this bug. I also have a ghostly immigrant who migrated alone. I don't think that this is supposed to be immigration, as this is a ghost I have already lain to rest once in this fortress.

She used to be a forlorn haunt, I gave her a coffin, she vanished, a Minotaur destroyed the coffin, I didn't get around to replacing it, and now she's immigrating as a murderous ghost. Also, I never managed to retrieve her body from the underground lake she fell in during some construction work, so that may have something to do with it.
