Does "separated from each other" mean "separated from the leader", or does separating a non-leader still cause the leader to stand around?
Possibly a simpler way to put it: does the leader ever stand around?
|I'm pretty sure that separating anyone causes everyone to stand around, but it's possible that, by chance, every time I've separated someone it's been the leader.|
I just encountered this issue as well, when using a retracting bridge to drop invaders into a drowning pit trap. Whenever a squad leader fell in and became separated from their squad, the others behind them stopped dead and wouldn't budge; because the leader was neither dead nor caged but simply inaccessible, no new leader as assigned.
So I wrote a DFHack script to detect invaders whose group leader was unreachable and promote one of them to be a new group leader for the others. After running that, the stalled and idle invaders picked right up again pathing into the fort behind their newly nominated leaders.
