0006305: Door permanently stuck open
Somehow, I've managed to get a tile glitched so any door built on it will be permanently stuck open.

DFHack probe utility reports nothing special about the tile itself. The tile/door worked normally for years in the savegame before getting stuck open.

Tricks tried, not fixing the bug:
- Rebuilding the door
- Building a different door
- Linking door to a lever
- Replacing constructed floor underneath it
- Building/removing other constructions on the tile
Save available if necessary.
door, Save Included

This could be related to / caused by the invisible items detailed in bug 0000895 since the savegame has a few invisible items melted by magma/lava and frozen in water.

However, there are and never have been any flows near the bugged door.

edit: Testing with the invisible item workaround (area reclaim+dump on suspected invisible items) also did not help.

The save should be centered on the door, F1 also zooms to it and there's a note on it.

That tile has a flag set that says that there is a unit in it, but there actually isn't any.

To fix it using dfhack 0.34.11-r3 you can use this command:

:lua select(2,dfhack.maps.getTileFlags(38,60,162)).unit=false

Or run the fix/stuckdoors script, which would do the same.

fix/stuckdoors did indeed fix it. (I wonder why DFHack's readme doesn't list all the available scripts?)

This must be somewhat common occurrence since there's a DFHack script to fix it...? I didn't find any bug reports about it, though.

In other words, this is a duplicate of 0003499.
