Monsters immediately recovering from panic

Stone dragon king panicked after I hit him in melee. He proceeded to attack me three times, and when I looked at him on my next action he wasn't afraid. I've noticed this with other monsters as well.

Didn't happen to me so far :-/

I can reproduce the issue fairly reliably with the attached save by attacking the stone dragon king until he panics.

EDIT: Interestingly, he sometimes seems to fly into a blind rage (6 attacks instead of 3), but there's no message indicating this.

EDIT2: He also attacks immediately upon loading the save, which doesn't seem right...

I'm still seeing this with lots of monsters in 3.0.5. Annoying, especially when they decide to get twice as many attacks without any warning message.

I didn't know monsters panicked at all. They only seem to rage in my experience. Raider lord is a good example, he always used to run away like a coward, now he only berserks.

Fixed. Thanks for the save file!

Hope this fixes the other bug with panics not happening at all. In my experience only stealthy attacks seem to cause panics (when the monster isn't aware of you).

Welp Kranach still rages instead of panics, but that is perhaps intended behaviour.
