I would think that prior to the siege the few people present were rattling around in the city - apart from a few places which belonged to certain people and clans by tradition if you wanted somewhere to stay you found an empty building and took it over. That of course falls down when the population rises at the start of the siege and someone (quite possibly Scathach) gets the job of sorting it out. What's more after getting it all sorted out in 1619 everyone will have to squash up in 1620 when the response to the the Blue Arrow arrives.

Given that these people are Orlanthi I don't think it's the crush that'll upset them, more the perceived status of the place they are compared to that of other groups.
