I didn't notice this happening after 34.01, but it is very possible it still happens, at least for ghosts. Anyone can confirm it?

Maybe this one was fixed as well, as http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/mantisbt/view.php?id=4405 [^] is fixed?

I marked this as a child of 0004405 as I don't believe this was an issue with fortress mode vs. world gen, more a matter of ghost/undead functionality game-wide.

In any event, I'll mark it as generally fixed. If you or anyone else notice it still happening, reopen this report or PM a manager on the forums.
