0005882: Dwarves take forever to fill a bucket
Dwarves which try to haul water with a bucket get stuck while filling the bucket.

It happened to me on two occasions:
- Trying to fill a pond to irrigate the farms
- chief medical dwarf trying to clean a patient

In both cases, the dwarves were getting the water from a brook or a murky pool. Haven't tried it yet with a well.
Set it up so your dwarves have to haul water for Fill Pond or Clean Patient jobs from a brook or murky pool.
Will add a save with the chief medical dwarf hauling water for cleaning a patient.

Here is the promised save: http://dffd.wimbli.com/file.php?id=6303 [^]

The doctor is caught in an endless loop trying to haul water.

I managed to reproduce this behaviour with a well.

EDIT: They finish "Give Water" jobs just like they would normally.

I've fixed every case of this I could locate, including all the ones I've seen mentioned.
