Summary0007209: Dwarves climb through well and get stuck
DescriptionI have a well over a water-filled cavern. Dwarves path through the well and wander around in the cavern, walking in the 'Open Space' layer between the well and the water surface, and eventually either going berserk, dying of thirst, or sometimes drowning if their water-walking prowess fails them. I think they're doing it when they're idle.
Steps To ReproduceThe fort is about two years old, I haven't attempted to reproduce.
Additional InformationI have the save file if that is helpful.
TagsNo tags attached.

I have uploaded the save. Likely, they are climbing/jumping through the well to go fishing or to try and retrieve a body and/or the body's equipment. Re-opening the stairwell allowed a lot of the dwarves to path back into the fort after they had gone through the well, but there are others who seek out the isolation and then go mad because of it.

The walking on open spaces was most likely climbing and jumping that was misinterpreted, but the movement rate appeared like walking speed.
