So I'm not seeing anything obvious in the logic - a fleeing monster should try it's preferred direction plus the two others to each side. One possibility is that a monster which is confused or has random movement could be unlucky and keep trying occupied squares - would that explain what you're seeing?

I'll take a look next time I play and try and get a few screenshot of odd behavior.

I don't think its random movement. Another possibility is what I'm seeing occurs in the move order of multiple monsters. Something gets frozen, then a monster moves vacating a square, then it's the player's turn ...
