Summary0000796: Pathfinding fixates on nearest water source, even if water source is in an unavailable area.
DescriptionI built a fort with a defensive wall around it, outside the wall in the SW was a brook. I built a functioning well in the NE corner of my walled off area, it works, water is not frozen, well is marked active. When dwarves require water they notice the brook and stand around doing nothing, flashing pathfinding errors and totally ignoring the well that they have direct access to. Most of my fort is located in the SW of my walled off area, so the brook is the nearest water source.
Steps To ReproduceBuild near one water source, arrange things so it is unreachable, make a second water source further away from your dwarves than the first one, watch them go insane ignoring the accessible one to throw themselves against walls over and over, futiely scrabling against the cold, unyielding stone, crying softly because it's so close and they just can't reach it.

I have a game in progress with the newest version of DF, let me get a couple of days to get my fort up and running and I will be able to test this using a tame tigerman the elves sold me. If it happens, I will upload the save.

Tried a few things with tightly closed doors, the tigerman had no problems pathing through the fort to my fortified water area. Haven't locked the fort down yet, but I don't think the problem will suddenly appear if I do.
