0005111: Some player raised zombies are hostile to player and other friendly zombies
I defeated a necromancer's tower and learned the secrets of life and death. Then, when I raised all the corpses and assorted body parts in the tower, they started fighting each other. Some were friendly to me, others weren't. Some passed out from pain when I attacked.

I should mention that some zombies were killed by previous adventurer (and one corpse belongs to a previous adventurer, he defeated the necromancers while sneaking, but didn't have the reader skill :( ) Despite the fact that this previous adventurer killed half the zombies in the tower, the tower seemed just as full as before when the second one got to it (minus the necromancers).

As far as modding, dwarfs have [NOPAIN][NOSTUN][FLIER][SPEED:100]
Download the attached save and raise all the corpses and body parts in sight (x-p-animate corpse).

I would upload a movie of this, but I can't get it below that site's 1 MB file limit. It's about 4 MB, despite not being very long.

This has happened to me too, I've been killed by a zombie I raised.

I've noticed that this also happens in Arena mode, especially if the side is Independent.

The arena independent ones will still fight back. Arena independence overrides everything -- give your guy a side and arena raised undead should work.
