0000196: Interrupted by x 10000
After a fight one of my miners is lying on the ground with a broken toe and is constantly spamming the "cancels task: Interrupted by <monster>" message.

This is a) bad for the announcement-readability and b) feels like a huge fps hog.
Doesn't always occure so not sure.
I let this on minor severity because you are sometimes able to fix it yourself.
Whereever the spammer is lying you build something (like a vertical bar). Still, it's annoying :)

This sounds like the old bug from 40d and earlier - the miner is clearly having nightmares about the monster he was fighting.

I have this with a swordsdwarf that was injured by a goblin thief, he gets carried to a bed and then cancels rest: interrupted by goblin thief. If I remove the bed from under him then the process repeats. It also seems that wounds cannot be diagnosed if the patient is not 'rest'ing.

I was testing my own case of this and managed to fix it by removing the guy from his squad. Spam stopped and the guy was able to get rest.

I had the issue with two of my soldiers after a fight with a few Tigermen. One of them stopped and got sent to the hospital, the other one stayed there, spamming me with 'interrupted by Tigerman' messages until finally I guess it managed to crash the game... Nothing would make him stop. tried removing him from the squad, then replacing him, then giving him a move order. I learned later that there WAS a tigerman up on a hill nearby, but it crashed randomly just before I could give the remaining, uninjured members of the squad the order to kill it.

Have the same thing: goblin siege, very bloody battle. Speardwarf got badly injured during a fight with a goblin that ended up in a cage-trap near him. Speardwarf was very injured, unconscious, but kept cancelling rest due to the goblin pikeman. I thought he was being taunted by the goblin from the cage (I was impressed!) but it didn't stop after the goblin got hauled away. Tried building a bed under him (and a roof over him), a hospital zone around him (/removing said hospital zone), but he doesn't seem to get diagnosed (unless I missed it) and he's not recovering.

Now I'm kinda hoping he dies, because every minute when I want to see if I missed any important messages, I have to scroll through several pages of the same message.

Deconstructing the bed under the wounded speardwarf did nothing btw, but building a vertical bar did! He finally realised he wasn't in the military any more, and became a miner again.

A little while later: "... cancels prepare easy meal: resting injury.
edit: he's in the hospital too now.

Try KILLING the creature in the cage.
