0009023: Hauling priority too high, blocks all but priority 1 mining jobs
From this forum post:

http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=151968.0 [^]

The miners in question are ignoring designated mining jobs, preferring to stand around repeatedly taking and cancelling "inaccessible" wood hauling jobs instead. Bug report 0000600 describes the problem with out-of-burrow jobs being constantly cancelled. Since mining is a "skilled" labor that requires equipment, while hauling is not, hauling should be lower in priority than "standard" priority 4 mining. Setting the mining designations to priority 1 does allow the miners to break free from wood hauling, but that effectively reduces the 7-value priority system back to a single value, unprioritized system.
embark in a jungle
cut down multiple trees
define a large wood stockpile
designate some tiles for mining
watch as your miner hauls wood
