[Deathkings] Bad behavior of object in lift (mobj hitbox overlap)
Splitting off the other issue from this report that I missed that I was supposed to back in the day. My apologies.
I also figure I should link it to this other issue with mobj hitboxes next to walls: http://tracker.skyjake.fi/issues/1660
On HeXen Death Kings, Map 35, there appears to be a similar case to the old Doom E1M7 column issue (at least as far as end result), with an Ettin and a pillar that functions as a lift (sector 15 and thing 257).
The corner of the Ettin's hitbox slightly overlaps the lift, pretty much identically to the Sergeants on column in Doom. However he can move away freely, if alerted, as in Vanilla.
However, unlike Vanilla, if the player tries to use the lift without alerting the Ettin, the Ettin suddenly jumps up to the lifts higher floor and the lift becomes stuck, as if Dday is confused about what sector the Ettin was in, when the player went to use the lift.

I'd like to comment that a similar issue appears to occur with any moving platform; I've experienced bad guys partially on lifts repeatedly jumping up and down (I.e I've had a stuck Demon first jump down when a lift starts moving down and then jump back up when the lift stops moving) or becoming caught in the ceiling (when the lift movement should be considered blocked and hence reverse) as Dday get's confused about what sector the bad guy is in.
