0006556: Dwarf attempting to path to unknown (likely belowground) webs.
Received an odd job cancellation on a new fort. After constructing a loom and a clothiers workshop I find that one of my fisherdwarves wants to collect webs. As far as I can tell there are no visible webs on the embark, so he may be attempting to path to an undiscovered caverns level somehow.

Anything different from 0001254?
2014-07-07 21:39   
I have not breached any caverns so far is one primary difference. Another difference being I cannot locate any webs to actually harvest. However the issue has not reproduced itself yet.

I did however receive a second strange cancellation. "Fish Cleaner cancels collect web: Needs 10 undisturbed thread." I believe I may have had a silk/web bag in my food depot containing seeds. I cannot locate this bag now. It is possible that the bag was considered 'harvestable' by the dwarf.

No, the undisturbed cancellation message happens when a dwarf takes the collect job but someone or something walks over the web and destroys it before the job dwarf gets to it.

Was the loom assigned to a burrow? In 0.40.05- that can also trigger the job.

Please reopen this report or PM a manager on the forums if Toady's note doesn't explain it.

Apologies. I have been rather busy since I last checked this topic. The Loom was not part of any burrow.

Additionally, if I recall correctly the dwarf in question pathed to the wagon and grabbed something from it. I believe it was a bag of some sort. After he had pathed to the wagon the cancellation occurred. This occurred shortly after the loom was finished.

Edit: I will look to see if I still have the save in question somewhere, but it may have gotten lost.

Please reopen this report or PM a manager on the forums if you have a save that reproduces this problem in 0.40.11+.
