0005911: Rollers accelerate carts that are not in contact with the roller
(posting on behalf of http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=109460.msg3290923#msg3290923 [^] )

"There seems to be a bug where when a cart moves over a roller, as well as accelerating that cart, every other cart on a track is accelerated in the same direction. This explains why my carts keep flying off the track, or suddenly speed up/slow down."
"When a minecart goes over a roller it accelerates not just the cart in question, but all carts on any tracks, accelerating them in the same direction.
This save is a simple setup with two tracks. The East/West route is already activated. To demonstrate the bug, set the North/South route's stop to "push when empty". The cart that reaches the rollers first should cause the other to derail"

I haven't attempted to reproduce the other forum user's situation yet. I merely searched for the bug, and not finding it reported, have facilitated the posting.
