Another marathon post :)

Has anyone else actually seen the colonist?  The first time I went into the 
labyrinth, I ran into him.  He opened a secret door right besdie me and yelled 
"they're everywhere!"--scared the beejeezus out of me.  I tried to get into 
the room he was in, but he stood in my way, so I punched him to death (oh 
well, he WAS in the way!).  Unfortunately, it was just a small section of 
corridor, and I couldn't find any secret doors or anything, and nothing of 
interest inside it.  Figuring this would happen every time, I kept on with the 
game.  THEN, the next few times I played, I couldn't find the door, and he 
didn't come out.  Until the last time I played, when I heard the little bugger 
open the door (and saw him run across the corridor I was in, but only on the 
scanner because he was right behind me and I didn't turn around in time) and 
he went into some other inaccesible place that I couldn't get to.  
maybe the only way to do this is to WAIT there until he comes out?
Has anyone else run into this, and have you found anything?

        Yeah, me too.  I found him, and he doesn't leave the room, just
as you said.  But here's something you may not know.  Kill him.  Wait
about ten minutes.  Another one appears!
