Summary0012665: Pathfinding breaks locally for single dwarves after path changes (wall building, floor building, wall tear down, digging)
DescriptionWorking in the first cavern, I'm flooring over some water and walling off an area. Sporadically, dwarves will complain that they have no path out of their 1-4 tile area.
Using DFHacks "gui/pathable" reports that their immediate area has no path to the rest of the fort and is pathability group "1".
Once, it happened to a dwarf digging in the main fort.
Saving and reloading has fixed the problem everytime so far.
Locking and and unlocking a door has also fixed the problem.

My DPS is getting low, that's the only other factor I can figure is involved.
Steps To ReproduceThis is only somewhat repeatable, but if you load the save and let a few days pass, it recurs for me every few days.
Screenshots to help:
Additional InformationThis seems to be related to many other pathfinding bugs like 0010838, Maybe 0012154, and 0011954. Even one from way back:

But I didn't see any reports for the current release, 50.11, so I figured I'd make one.

Sorry to hear about your DPS. Keep those axes sharp! (They don't call it "DFHack" for nothing.)
