Summary0005294: Dwarves gleefully walk into rivers
DescriptionNow that rivers have ramps on the banks, dwarves with jobs on the far side see no problem walking right in because they think they can trace a path back out on the other side. Of course, because they can't swim, they just get swept downstream, and in my case off the 7-story waterfall (ouch). It seems like their pathfinding no longer cares about the presence of deep water.
Steps To Reproduce1) Embark with a river (not a brook)
2) Designate a job (cut a tree, build something) on the far side from your dwarves
3) Watch as whoever takes the job jumps in the river and probably drowns
3a) Bonus points if you have a natural waterfall and you're trying this upstream from it
