It helps to have a save that demonstrates a bug and steps on how to find it in that save. Otherwise it's just a matter of generating a thousand worlds and hope something works. Time that could be better off spent fixing the bug.

You can upload saves to Dwarf Fortress File Dept and post a link here. [^]

Also check of course that they're not undead. I expect intelligent undead can indulge in training.

I've seen no examples so far of trading occuring post-resurrection. The one posthumous trader I found who was reanimated carried out his posthumous trading 13 years before his corpse was reanimated.

This happens in every world I generate. Examples uploaded here: [^]

I listed the reproducibility as "sometimes" because while this shady behavior shows up in every world I've generated with merchant companies that have dead members, only a minority of the dead members are guilty of it.

Over 70% of the dead merchants I looked at (including a number of reanimated ones) haven't traded since their death.
