Summary0006503: Minotaur strangles dwarf under water during three months and counting
DescriptionA Minotaur attacked my fortress and started beating one of my dwarves. Then, both of them fell into the river and the Minotaur continued to strangle her under water.

I waited, expecting one of them to die but none did. The Minotaur started to strangle the dwarf under water at 28th Granite. As I write these lines, it's still strangling her at 22nd Hematite. That's almost three months.

I'm not sure about the dwarf. She might be a vampire, which is why she hasn't drowned yet, but that doesn't explain why the Minotaur hasn't drowned either. At both tiles where Minotaur and dwarf are, it's "Water [7/7]", so it's not like there is space to breath.

I'm going to leave the link to download the save file here: [^]

Simply press "u" and look for the Minotaur in the "Others" section, once you load the map.
Steps To ReproduceI'm not sure how to reproduce it once again. I suppose you could try to make a Minotaur chase a Dwarf near a River, expecting them to fall into it. However, I don't know if the Minotaur would proceed to strangle or beat him once they're there.
Additional InformationOnce again, here's the link to the save file: [^]

Simply press "u" and look for the Minotaur in the "Others" section, once you load the map.

Duplicate of bug 1403? Related to bug 449?

I can confirm from testing the save that killing the minotaur (ending the strangle) leads to the dwarf near-instantly dying. Also, the minotaur is swimming and therefore can breathe from the surface. Only the dwarf is actually dying.

EDIT: it looks like the part of the code which increments the air loss counter/data does not run for the dwarf while the dwarf is being strangled. Even removed from the water, the dwarf has a broken upper spine and will eventually suffocate when separated from the wrestling minotaur.

Thanks for the info, UristDaVinci. I'm crossposting it at 0000449.
