0000770: Resting dwarves tasked to recover wounded
Two dwarves are stranded outside of my fortress as the dwarf who is tasked to "recover wounded" has also been injured in the same attack and is resting, but not losing the jobs on the task screen. Nobody else can collect them.

It doesn't seem these stranded dwarves are eligible for food or water, they could potentially die if the dwarf tasked to recover them has been severely injured.
Could be partly related to the "Cancelled rest: Interrupted by xxxx" bug caused by creatures that should not be. I had two goblin pikemen in cages that caused my military to spam me with that until I atom smashed the cages. Everyone but those two went off to rest. The dwarf tasked to recover wounded, might have gotten the task during this period, but not certain.
No tags attached.

Did you happen to get an "OVERWROTE JOB" announcement? Try searching your gamelog.txt for that phrase.

As a matter of fact, yes. Recover Wounded was overwritten by Rest in two instances, and two dwarves were sitting out there without attempting to move.

Then miscellaneous tasks were spam-overwritten once I atomized the offending goblins, Rest also replacing them.

As an update, the dwarf that is shown as tasked to recover them is moving about already, but has not made an effort to recover the remaining dwarf.

Bug? Maybe this should be bumped up to major seeing as how it's invariably fatal for the victims, unless it's something that there's a workaround for.

The job overwrite could very well have caused this, but it's not clear. I'm going to leave this open until we're more sure or another reason is found.

Assuming this is the OVERWROTE JOB thing.
