Summary0001756: Traders showing up extremely late in the season.
DescriptionI'm not sure if this counts as a bug exactly, but traders are always showing up during the last month of the season, so that while not dilly-dallying myself, the actual trading is almost always happening in the next season. Happens with dwarfs, elves and humans in every game I've started.
Steps To ReproduceStart a game and just wait until trading season rolls around. You'll probably need a depot too and active civilizations to trade with.

I've noticed that in mine ever since the first 31.x versions. I thought it might be something to do with caravan arc framework, since they were otherwise staying for the usual amount of time.

This may be due to a change in the way the game keeps track of time - in 40d and earlier, time within a season was tracked as a decreasing number of ticks to the end of the season (starting at 10080 and decrementing every 10 frames), but version 0.31.01 changed that counter to count upward from zero instead. Most parts of the game were fixed to take this into account, but caravans and sieges are seemingly still using the old trigger times.

This appears to have been fixed; caravans now show up at the beginning of the season.
