0000137: Path finding seems to break completely
None of the workers hauling wood could access the stockpile, even though they were right next to it. Carpenter could not find wood for carpenter workshop jobs. No dwarfs could find path to water (which was a river just down the slope)
Seemed to have gone after saving and loading.

Related to 0000104 and 0000018.

I think it's established that there is one or more pathfinding bugs out there. Now the trick is figuring out how to reproduce one.

    Easily replicated. Built a fort, dug a straight 10z stairway down and started fleshing out my outpost. No issues until now.

As soon as I start building a wall(just one side to start, not enclosed) around my entrance pathing goes nuts and most dwarves go to No Job and all progress slows down considerably.

Note: Easy to spot with Fisherdwarves. They went from "Fishing" to "No Job" almost at the same time.

Not sure if this is related, but my dwarves seemed to find it impossible to move barrels from one stockpile to another (when one is set to take from the other). They would walk between each pile, stopping at the barrels with a question mark.
Is this the same bug or does it need another report???

refer to 0000086 for the take from stockpile issue.
