FS#21951 - Bounty: Dragon bugged in some cases

During the quest Bounty: Dragon (BQ04), it appears that the dragon will not be correctly spawn (respawn?) at Mount Anthor. There are a few reports of this on UESP's page.

It’s possible that this is not unique to Mount Anthor, but just having killed the target dragon previously. I believe I did that, but I’m not 100% sure. The other reports on the page don’t mention it either way.

Also, at least for Mount Anthor, it seems that it wants to path you through some bizarre location. For me and one other person, it thought that the target was inside Markarth (but still seemingly at the same map coordinates as Mount Anthor); for another person, it was inside the EEC. Trying the console command MOVETOQT BQ04 simply caused the game to crash.

It’s riddled with mods, but I’ve attached a saved game, in case it’s useful.

Update: It seems this does indeed have something to do with the actor being "dead". I put that in quotes because using PRID 32AC2 and then GetDead returns 0, so it's not officially dead, which is why the alias check succeeds. But using RecycleActor on that same reference brings the dragon back to life and allows the quest to be completed.

I'm hoping this tells you more than it tell me. :)

I can confirm the issue in your save, but have no clue if it’s caused by mods or is some odd vanilla game issue. Going to need Arthmoor to look at this one.
