0000638: Nobles' positions vanish
When a noble/admin is removed from a position via the "N" screen, it seems that sometimes the position itself is also removed. This is a significant problem when you find yourself unable to appoint a militia commander, as the position is gone, and quickly find your fortress overrun.
Seems to only happen some of the time, but still with alarming frequency. So far the "expidition leader" position, "militia captain" position, "chief medical Dwarf" position and "militia commander" position, have all disappeared over the course of a 5-year fortress.
Just felt like saying, despite all the bugs, this release is awesome.
No tags attached.

Did your expedition leader die? If so, then it's a duplicate of 0000141

I hadn't actually realised that link, but now you mentioned it, you're right. Sorry, this one's a dupe!

No problem.
