0001244: Place In Traction is not working
This is the third fort i am seeing this. Dwarves go to the patient that needs traction but are not able to move him as it seems. They just stand with the job active there until they get hungry/thirsty/etc.
Build hospital with a Traction Bench - get a dwarf smashed up good - enjoy the show

See 0000168 -- the wound that required traction may have already healed. Could you check the dwarf's health screens to see whether this is the case?

If that doesn't explain it, then it might be helpful if you upload the save. http://dffd.wimbli.com/ [^]

The wound was definitely fresh and not healed.

I don't have a save where the situation is visible. The dwarf in question is now up and running around (the wound is still visible but there is no more treatment scheduled) since i kept on playing

I could watch 3 different dwarves trying to get him to traction without effect.
I was also able to see this behavior in the versions 0.31.01 and 0.31.02 in different forts

I guess i could try to get someone hurt by setting up a little "mining accident"

I'll need a save for this one, since it hasn't happened to me and it isn't the same as the suture/dressing bug.

If a seasonal save of an affected fortress will do, I have this one:

http://dffd.wimbli.com/file.php?id=2135 [^]

EDIT: Just to avoid confusion. The save that is there now does show the actual moment of it not working. There is a dwarf trying to do it right now.

Note: I am not completely sure, but I don't have any plaster in the fortress, I think.

Deathworks -- capturing the actual moment is always helpful. He's got a few hundred saves waiting to be looked at, so that extra time can add up.

I replaced the save with another file where an engraver is currently trying to place the broker into the traction. It is the same link as above as I simply uploaded it as a new version (but I changed the actual file name).

(This is a personal facepalm moment if you look at the ingame date - sorry about the unnecessary inconvenience (^_^;; )

2010-04-18 05:28   
Ah, thanks Deathworks for providing the save!

The medical dwarf just stands over the victim, is listed as "Place In Traction" in the job menu, but seems to have no interest whatsoever in placing the victim in traction.

This one is fixed for 0.31.07. I'd recommend getting rid of all your traction bench buildings until 0.31.07 is out if you don't want doctors to be stalled by this. All it'll take is one.
