0001211: 2 "stones" listed in preferences, no "metal"
Don't know if this is a new feature or a bug, but I have a dwarf with the following preferences:

"...likes sandstone, native Aluminum, variscite..."

In 40d, it was always "Stone, Metal, Gem..." - and this is stone/stone/gem. Might be a typo in the RAW, might be a bug, might be a one-time glitch - but it's there.

Can send Saved gamefile if desired (use e-mail)

No tags attached.

Well I had a dwarf who liked 2 different metals. I don't think this is a bug.

See 0000823 -- the game currently uses METAL_TEMPLATE for all the "native" ores, which means they also have the METAL tag, which causes all kinds of problems. If it's indeed supposed to go "stone, metal, gem," then that's the cause.
