0006696: Unretiring adventurer causes character to be stuck inside rock

Cant figure how to edit, <hashtag>1 apparently links to bug number 1, so 0000001 was really meant to be <hashtag>1 as in first adventurer. Severity should probably be minor as well.

UPDATE: Retired another adventurer which I played on for some time. When starting adventure in that world, I got segmentation faults a couple of times when counting the dates. Started adventurer once again, this time it did not segfault when counting the dates. Selected my adventurer and unretired him and got stuck in rock. Alt+F4. Did this a couple of times, alternating between segfaults and stuck in rock until finally I got in a meeting hall of some sort. Game only seems to segfault or stuck character in rocks at random. Repeatedly restarting the game and trying to unretire adventurer eventually works.

Don't worry about severity, we don't use it unless it is a crash.

This happened to me as well with a dwarf adventurer. Version 0.40.02

Don't forget to upload a copy of the crashing game for them to check/test, Kuxe.

Here's a save for 0.40.02: http://dffd.wimbli.com/file.php?id=8849 [^] . There are two files: one is immediately after retiring (so it's a usable world), and the other is with the stuck un-retired adventurer active.

Ah sorry, the save-file was deleted.. I'll make sure to upload one here if I get this bug in 40.02.

After fixing the unretire bug, I tried this save three times and it worked. There's is still a slight chance that dwarf site placement is bugged in some way, so if a 40.03+ adv starts in a wall, or an fresh non-retire adv starts in a wall, this one is a dwarf site issue rather than a retire issue. We'll have to see!
