0007937: Constructed walls/fortifications require only 1 build material regardless of dimensions
b-C-w (constructed walls) only uses a single build material (block, etc.) regardless of the size of the wall. Even a maximum sized wall (10x10) only needs 1 block.
Resize wall to any dimensions.
Find a spot for it, press Enter.
On the build material selection screen, it will not say "(X needed)" the way it does for up-stairs, or the way it did for walls in all previous versions.
No tags attached.

Here is a 40.07 save using wood that results in amber walls in all but the first tile (which used the appropriate material).

Constructed fortifications also exhibit this behavior. Constructed floors, ramps, tracks, up stairs, down stairs, and up/down stairs do not.

One tile of the constructed wall is of the correct build material. The rest are "Unknown Material wall" or "Unknown Material Block wall". That's on Linux. Apparently people who encounter this bug on Windows(?) get walls made of a variety of random materials, in a plethora of colors. I suspect the game is using uninitialized memory for the materials.

confirmed in this duplicate report I just made because I didn't see this one: http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/mantisbt/view.php?id=7939 [^]

Maybe an unintended consequence of the fix for 0001091?
2014-08-10 18:42   
Possibly, according to http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=142080.msg5561663#msg5561663 [^]

I can say that I have seen this too, useing rock blocks. Deconstructing the extra constructions dosent give anything.
Oh, I saw this on windows, incase that matters...

Seeing this too. It's very strange...
