Engulfing while bound to colony cells "detaches" them

If you are bound to another cell with a binding agent, pressing “G” to engulf will “detach” any connected cells. They will still be considered attached and will simply stay put until you press “U” to formally detach them, and then their AI reactivates, at which point they must be bound to again to reform a colony.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. have binding agent
  2. bind to a cell
  3. press “G”
  4. experience bug

Does it always happen? For me enabling engulf mode doesn’t most of the time detach cells in your colony. The detaching happening seems to be pretty random instead, there’s an open issue for that:

It seems to consistently happen when I try to engulf, but I’ll test a little more to see if it always happens
