0001951: Delay between performing wrestling move and time advancing
As a bronze colossus, I allowed a dragon to breathe fire on me to start myself melting. At close range, I was able to use [A] to begin a wrestling move, and once I chose my action, it printed that single line; however, once I pressed [A] to choose another attack, I was then notified that I was melting.

In several cases, I melted to death after pressing [A] the 2nd time but before actually getting the attack menu - in these cases, once I dismissed the "You have melted." message, the attack menu appeared and I was able to make an additional attack after I was dead (not surprisingly, it missed).
Spawn a strong creature (e.g. dragon) and a weak creature capable of wrestling (e.g. a dwarf). Assume control of the weak creature, then repeatedly attempt to wrestle using the [A] menu.

It looks like the root cause is the same as 0001952/0001907 - if you left-click after performing the wrestling move, time suddenly advances as it's supposed to.

This also happens with alt-movement - see 0002095.

Reminder sent to: Quietust

Does this still occur in 0.31.18 SDL?

Confirmed that this does still happen in 0.31.18 SDL - I was able to replicate the above dragon wrestling scenario in Arena mode and make the same post-mortem wrestling attempt.
