0001038: Former Mayor running around babbling results in mayor dissapearing from noble screen, inability to replace other nobles
To test the mayor oddness with bug 0141 and such further, I allowed my former mayor (who had lost an election) to go melancholy. He began running around babbling, and the mayor position vanished from the nobles screen (the actual mayor retained his requirements on his unit -> z info screen), and I was unable to replace any nobles, just like what happened when a mayor died (0141) or was injured and went to the hospital (0411).

To be precise, the former mayor who went melancholy was uninjured, and merely very very unhappy due to being deprived of the creature comforts to which he had grown accustomed.
Get a mayor, let him lose an election, make him real unhappy so he goes melancholy, with any luck he'll start running around babbling and the same thing will happen to you.

I haven't tried making the actual mayor go melancholy to see if it happens with him too, but it wouldn't surprise me.
He still obeys military orders and burrow restrictions (for the most part) while "running around babbling."

I was also going to atom-smash him to see if that made the mayor vanish from the nobles screen, but he went melancholy while I was watching Merlin (waiting for him to walk into the atom smasher). He had no problems walking into it AFTER going melancholy though!

All right, a lot of the elections had residual information hanging around afterward... put in the wrong id number. It should be cleaned up now.
