Hearthling cannot path to item, stuck standing around

When an item lies below a low hanging wall, and a hearthling has no way to reach it, they will simply stand around doing nothing.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Build a low-hanging floor
  2. Put an item below the floor, for example by placing a container and then removing it
  3. Wait for a Hearthling to pick said item up - They cannot reach it

Expected Results:
The hearthling will do something else instead or a Sims-like icon will appear above their head - β€œI cannot reach that item!”

Actual Results:
The hearthling stands around, dumbfounded

I have 32 Hearthlings (limit 50) and disabled the item limit.

Also, one of the hearthlings just went to get food, so they are apparently not stuck there forever.

Also also, I just removed the building to free my poor hearthlings. I no longer need this building. This is what happened:

release-707 (x64)[M]

The building is gone though, so that’s good. Everyone is unstuck and healthy.
