Summary0010280: the "Seek infant" job triggers (and completes) even if the infant has been turned into an undead horror
DescriptionI had a migrant wave including a mother & infant. thanks to 0005551 the infant was dropped at the edge of the map and had to crawl to the fort; on the way it got hit with a thralling cloud (of execrable murk, in this particular case, but it probably doesn't matter). thanks to 0010031 the infant was not hostile, and I noticed the night creature symbol in my meeting zone, so I evacuated the area & started building cage traps until I managed to catch it.

once I saved & reloaded, the "seek infant" job triggered for the mother as noted in 5551, and she went and got the remains of her infant out of the cage, and carried it around for more than a year. It was finally put down when a caravan guard saw it, triggering combat (which produced baby bits everywhere, since the mother and a bunch of the other dwarfs nearby had picks). The baby was thereafter buried in a coffin, and did not produce a ghost while it was still an active thrall.
Steps To Reproduceget a migrant wave with infant on a map with thralling weather; hope the baby (only) gets hit, or trap it outside and wait. after that point, save & reload; the migrant wave & thralling have to happen in the same play session.

This is honestly kind of heartwarming (in a creepy way).
