UPDATE: looks like you can enter another cell and have the game do the automatic follower teleport, and this seems to have fixed him --- Consistent, reloaded several times from a nearby save. He stops following me and just stands around every time I enter combat with the two raiders at the tree near the quest objective. Eventually got past this stage with a "moveto player" while at the objective and then shoving him to the point where he kneels to investigate. He follows without issue all around the area, but as soon as I engage the raiders near the objective, he becomes a statue. Edit: he's still broken, he won't follow me to the NEXT objective. Is a statue at the first objective. Any way to boot his follow AI in the head?
