Summary0011600: Reassigning guard captain to someone already in the guard malfunctions
DescriptionIt seems like reassigning someone as guard captain through the (n)oble menu if they're already part of the guard doesn't function properly (see reproduction for detailed summary)
Steps To Reproduce* Load the save at [^]
* Use (n)oble menu to assign Kib Idenem as captain of the guard
* Pop up (m)ilitary menu - Kib now shows up twice (once in slot 1 and once in slot 5)
* Try to fix it. This is what I did: scroll down to slot 5 and hit enter to remove him. He's removed from slot 1 instead, leaving him still in slot 5 and no commander for the squad
* Try to assign him in slot 1 preparatory to other steps to remove the entry in slot 5 -- now he's in slot 1, and slot 5 says "Kib Idenem (traveling)"
Additional InformationThanks!

Have tried from save, dwarf does appear erratically like you described, had a little bit of trouble with the method, but i think i saw enough.

Captain of the guard and the militia commander -> militia captain are seperate roles but captain of the guard cannot function independently of [RESPONSIBILITY:MILITARY_STRATEGY] that allows them to interlap with militia by design of the players military screen, nor does the commander who's new captain assignments have authority over the fortress guard.

This bug might be unsolvable until the noble system tied to military recieves change or Toady hotfixes the present problem to override going through different position leaders in a similar vein to problems recieved with broken chains of command through [REPLACED_BY] 0002689

You might list this under 0000319 and subsequent parent - child reports from that for other squad issues.
