0011421: Dwarves cursed by the gods suddenly don't perform any more labors
I had a miner tantrum in a temple and get cursed by the gods to be a "putrid one." They were mining and doing labors for several seasons. Then the dwarf spent their entire life standing in the middle of the temple, refusing to perform any labors. I expelled them once I realized this.
I have not tried to reproduce this, but I suspect watching a dwarf tantrum in a temple, dedicated to a god, with statues, would reproduce the "cursed by the gods" part of this report.
No tags attached.

That sounds like they got transformed into an intelligent undead, which are very buggy in their own right.

If they were undead wouldn't they be opposed to life? They seemed to be doing okay in the fort until they stopped working.

Please post a save. "Cursed to be a putrid one" doesn't sound like any vanilla god curse I've heard of.

Now, if a "putrid one" is a Building Destroyer class undead thing, then yeah, that's a known bug fixed for 47.04. Generally seen when building destroyer experiments visit. They stand around talking to no-one and occasionally smash something.

I do not have that save file anymore. If I get another dwarf that gets cursed like this I will post the save. This happened running vanilla 0.47.03. I think it might be a new form of curse. I got a pop-up and zoom to the temple when they got cursed. The dwarf kept the same icon (☺), but the color of it changed to teal. Under the 'u'nit tab I believe the dwarf was listed as "Urist McLastname, dwarf putrid one Miner".
