Summary0007566: Miner stuck with dig in the corner probably a pathfinding problem
DescriptionMiner stuck at a spot after he was commanded to dig a spot he almost starved to death I solved it by removing that particular block from mining it and he went back to no job.

Steps To ReproduceI don't really know
Additional Informationprobability of the causes:

it's at a reclaimed fortress btw so it might be a pathfinding problem
ramps were being removed at that time so the path was probably removed when he was assign to it
TagsNo tags attached.

I've had similar things happen in 40.03 and 40.04.
In one case, two dwarves were ordered to deconstruct a wall when getting stuck a few tiles away from it. The 10 or so tiles of wall were deconstructed without problem.
The other time an architect got stuck while designing a paved road.

I think in both cases, the path or the job item got disturbed at some point.
In the latter, it was a road built from ice - I assume the ice melted.
I'm not sure about the former, but I suspect a path has become unavailable; I was building new walls at the same time.
The solution for both was to cancel their job and reassign it.

Expected behavior would be a canceled job and message like "cancels construct floor: job item lost" or ""cancels give water: water source vanished"
I should mention though that these still happen - the bugged behavior only occurs on occasion.

"I was building new walls at the same time" should make this a duplicate of 0006842.

to be honest I wasn't building any new walls at that time this probably happens even when you remove their paths as I mentioned
"ramps were being removed at that time so the path was probably removed when he was assign to it"

I do think it's not so much the walls as having their path removed.

That quote was for clanl. Given that you most likely removed the path thereby making the miner get stuck is the same behaviour as building a wall and causing a citizen to get stuck. Please continue discussion in 0006842. If you find that your case is specific to reclaim or ramps, please reopen this report with new information.
