Summary0010982: Caravan Guards do not need to eat or drink
Descriptionsome caravan guards(& diplomat guards) tend to stuck in a narrow path, if there are 2 of them wanting to path through each other. they just switch their position again and again, forever.

Once a dwarven caravan came, and left without those bugged guards. And they came back next year, bringing more guards. Still the previous ones were alive, not drinking, eating, or even sleeping a second.

If I demolish wall next to it, they get out of there and leave the map. I guess maybe they are trying to yield the path to the other.
Steps To ReproduceMake a narrow path out of the fort. Wagons take a long way out, guards are stuck in the narrow path.
Additional Information [^]
There are two dwarven guards in this state.(In B3, southwest of the trading depot) It is Summer and they've been there for almost 2 years.

This is a savefile from another bug report : [^]
The game will crash soon, but anyway it shows what it should.

Guards not eating/drinking is presumably an intentional abstraction to reduce the complexity/cost of guard AI.

Creatures getting stuck creature-swapping in small hallways is 0008845.
