Summary0004773: Ghosts obstruct doors
DescriptionGhosts standing on squares occupied by doors obstruct those doors, keeping them open (hence unable to be locked)
Steps To ReproduceDifficult, since you can't control ghosts.

a) Kill lots of dwarves and don't bury them

b) Build lots of doors
Additional InformationKind of a cool bug, don't mind having ghosts screw with fortress operation in minor ways like this. Ghost in question is a restless haunt, in case anyone is curious (as it would be perfectly appropriate for a poltergeist to do this :) )

Do the ghosts actually open closed doors, or do they just prevent doors from being closed if they're standing on one when another dwarf walks through?

It might be an interesting feature (assuming it doesn't already happen) for ghosts to actually unlock locked doors.

That's a good question. Hard to test directly since I can't get the ghosts to do what I want, but I'll keep an eye out.

Finally caught a ghost in the act of passing through a door without anyone else around. The door opened for the ghost.
