0009996: Salt water flooding from rooms with no water source in retired fortress when visited in Adventure mode.
When I started an adventurer in a fortress I had retired, water was flowing through the doors from several rooms that had no water source. This flooded most of the fortress. When I retired the adventurer and reclaimed the fortress, the flooding continued.

One of the flooding source rooms was the library, and the other the temple.

The was also some non-flowing water in odd places that didn't seem to be in the path of the flood.
Begin Adventure mode in a retired fortress.
A few of the times I backed up my save I accidentally left the game running at the start screen. I've read that this can cause some segfaults. I'm not sure if it could have caused this. I did not notice any other unreported bugs.

This may the similar to or the same as:

This may be related to 0005872, which 0009857 is a duplicate of. Dunno, though. The fortress didn't contain rooms dug underneath standing saltwater, did it?

I just had something similar happen; yes, the fortress was built underneath some standing ocean, but when digging, there was no "damp stone" so there shouldn't have been any flooding.

It's looks like have something to do with water source mechanics in adventure mode. Probably ocean tiles continue to act as water source even if they have no water.
I had a similar bug: I dug a fortress in north pole frozen ocean and when visited it with adventurer found just an ice when fortress enterence supposed to be. Not-underground structures (like ice walls) was ok.
