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.
