In general, if something only happens to you, and is impossible to replicate, you should upload a save to demonstrate the problem. Unless someone can see the bug happening, there's no way to see what happened, thus no way to fix it.
Dffd (http://dffd.bay12games.com [^]) has a bugged save area for this. Upload there then post a link here. Also mention whatever mods you're using (starter pack, etc).

Specifically, can you reproduce this without utilities - TWBT, DFHack, Dwarf Therapist, etc.?
