0004867: Strange behaviour when installing colony in hive
Colony installation appears to cause malfunction of pathfinding. Dwarf with 'colony installation' task can get trapped behind wall/raised bridge, even when another path to the colony exists. Lowering bridge or removing wall has no impact.
Happens randomly when dwarf is assigned 'install colony task'.
Can be worked around by temporarily putting dwarf into the military and activating their unit.
No tags attached.

Reminder sent to: Adamfostas

Do you have multiple dwarfs with the beekeeping labor active?

Most likely the dwarf is standing still because a previous dwarf already installed the hive the job references.

I do - I will amend this to see if the phenomenon repeats.
