Summary0008170: Magma men don't set trees on fire
DescriptionWhile magma doesn't cause grass to burn (bug 0004041) it *does* cause trees to burn. However, if you place a magma man up into a tree where there are leaves (not on a trunk, so it's not bug 0006643) it won't do anything, even if you put many of them there and let them fight and move around.

If I increase the magma man's FIXED_TEMP by a factor of 10 (12,000 to 1200,000) then they *DO* set the trees on fire. I don't know if this means that the FIXED_TEMP is wrong (meaning a quick fix), or if this means that there's a bug in the temperature code.

Increasing a magma man's FIXED_TEMP beyond 60000 won't actually work the way you expect, since temperature values are only 16-bit - a value of 120,000 is actually 54464, and "1200,000" is actually 20352.
