Super splitting bug

I have seen a strange splitting bug a couple times in the beta (v91). It happens with phagocytes and devorocytes evolving in an experimental plate. Some cells evolve the ability to do a "super split"--where children fly apart energetically and separate by a great distance, as if viscosity were low (even when it's normal).

Here is video capture of what it looked like: ... s.mp4?dl=0

Here is the saved substrate, though when I load it now, the split behavior looks normal: ... trate?dl=0

The genome editor also shows the super splits, at least at first. After loading one of the devorocyte cells from the microscope, I had to zoom way out to see its children split. But after editing something, it returned to a normal (reasonable-looking) split simulation.

I see that the higher cytoskeleton strength, the higher split range between two cells. But that in the video seems too much.

You may be able to reproduce the bug by evolving the substrate I already posted. I did this and got a modified genome that did the same huge split (and recorded more video too, just because it looks cool).

Here is the snapshot substrate when it evolved again: ... trate?dl=0

And video (44 MB): ... 2.mp4?dl=0

As before, if I load this substrate now, everything looks normal. The buggy splitters are just normal splitters. But evolve it awhile and I bet you'll see it appear anew.

This is likely the bug i mentioned. It is fixed but not uploaded yet.
