Damaged moving toward stairs in challenge mode

On challenge mode, with the 'must move towards stairs or take damage' mode on, sometimes your character will still take damage despite moving towards the stairs.

I was running the challenge mode today (June 5 2015), a troll assassin, using First Aid and healing to move around the dungeon a bit.
I decided to move back towards the stairs, and took damage.
I worried I did it wrong, so move again back towards stairs, and took damage and died.

Does anyone have a valid save file for r59 allowing us to reproduce this?

Could it be that you moved from a position connected to the stairs via a straight line to a more diagonally connected position? Diagonals are farther distant than straight lines even though the number of tiles between you and the stairs or the number of steps required to get to the stairs might seem the same.

Does it calculate the shortest path through explored areas only or can the shortest path also go through unexplored areas or even through unrevealed secret doors?

I was on a straight line I think. I will try to reproduce it, even if I have to mess with the current date

Do you play the Deluxe or the standard version? If Deluxe... why not? What's happening?

I was playing r57. I downloaded r59 from the public site, and did not see the Challenge Mode option.

Just downloaded r58 from the pre-release site, set the date to June 5, and made it happen.

Specifically, once I saw the stairs, I walked directly there. Then moved away once (took damage), used first aid, moved away again (took damage), used first aid, moved back again.

Expected result:
no damage

took damage.

I moved directly away, no diagonals. Just to the right twice, then directly back once to the left.

the save file is from r58, a trollish assassin, just after the stair damage was applied incorrectly.

@Mobius: Now I understood. Thanks!

The game always memorized the closest distance you ever had been to the stairs. You took damage as long as you were further away than that closest distance. Moving away twice and moving back once thus didn't help.
