0003347: Demonic diplomat emits noxious secretions and kills dwarves
Now that 0000596 is fixed, demonic diplomats no longer rampage around and destroy every building they find, but if they happen to be a variety of demon that has noxious secretions, they will still emit them and cause all manner of deadly syndromes in the dwarves that happen to be nearby.

As this was reported on behalf of the posters in the above mentioned forum thread, I don't have my own savegame that illustrates the problem.

It seems more like a case of bad luck than anything, plus I don't see how Toady can fix it other than outright preventing demons from becoming diplomats.

Would that really be such a bad thing, SMJ?

Seems like a feature, not a bug. When the humans send a diplomat that leaks poison, they're trying to tell you something.

@smjjames - in the same way as 0000596?
