I think there’s another issue related with it. After artillery attack affected units are concentrating for aggro, but several spitters are busy with their trees, so main group is left uncompleted and does not start counterattack. I think main group must leave losers alone if after some time they still cannot join for some (possibly legal) reason.

I made a little video.
A spitter was busy with a tree and randomly he started walking and ran into my defence.

If it wasn't a horsehair worm infestation, I'm curious to hear what was causing the odd behavior.

The fix I wrote to make biters not shoot out of range did not fully take into account that other parts expected to have returned to them, which messed up those systems and resulted in the behavior above.
