Stopped playing the game after I hit this bug. I've probably been super slow so at that stage I had invested something like 4 hours into the game. Was as massive fan of DF up to this point and I'm pretty miffed like many others seem to be. Decided to pipe up as no updates other than "we're still looking into it" over nearly a month. If it was any other consumer product with a manufacturing fault it would be replaced/fixed or returned. Unacceptable as far as I'm concerned. In my opinion at this stage it would be prudent for DF to let us know if the fix for this bug will ever be released (looking through some of the comments it would seem that a fix exists but is logistically held up.). By the weekend many of us will have been sat on this bug for a month.
