0008147: Retire with caravan present --> live wagons scattered around site
I have twice retired a fort with a dwarven caravan present and then visited that fort with an adventurer. Both times the caravan's wagons have been scattered around the site, sometimes partially inside walls in places with no wagon path to the surface.
1. Retire fort while dwarven caravan is at the trade depot
2. Visit same fort with an adventurer and look for wagons
I have a save which demonstrates this bug, but it currently crashes DF upon loading due to a separate bug. It can be found at 0008122.
caravan, retire, wagon

Live wagons, and also lots of merchants and guards.

This really hits the FPS hard.

Still present in DF 0.40.24

* Start an adventurer in 'gulfracks' the fortress on the island off the coast of Africa
* Go down the stairs

Also note that live wagons are completely immune to melee attacks in adventurer mode.

Still occurs in 0.42.04, retired a bunch of adventurers in my fort for funsies and it seems the more you do it the more wagons get scattered about, even spawning half inside the walls.
