0000198: Trader runs around in circles, never reaches depot
I have a dwarven trader pulling a horse carrying goods, who seems to run around in circles instead of going to my depot. As a result, I can't start trading. One other trader, also with a horse, has arrived at the depot.

I have a save showing this issue.
No tags attached.

Hmm, when I reloaded the save the circling trader immediately got to her senses and headed for the depot.

sounds suspiciously like another pathing issue..

Maybe the trader was being chased in circles by a mandril or something?

I was never able to repro this and I assume it was an artifact of the pathfinding issues, so just close this.

Alright, will do.
