What th... Magma pump won't operate for no apparent reason by SL

Important: If the movie appears blank or fails to play it is because it was recorded using a corrupt version of Dwarf Fortress. This is a known bug and is reported in the tracker, bug 2489. The DFMA administration is in the process of cleaning up these movies from the site; and hopes bay12games will fix the game functionality soon.

Maybe the pump is backwards? It happened to me a few times when i was setting up pumps to drain a river.
Otherwise, submit the save file to toady asap!

It's not backwards - It pumped before I built the wall two spaces to the right of the lower pump. Also, I deconstructed and reconstructed the entire thing (both pumps and their power apparatus), and it still doesn't pump.

I'm uploading the save now.

Do you only see a blank space instead of a play button?
