Summary0003415: Dwarf name frequently announced in red, with no additional information
DescriptionOne of my dwarves' names pops up in the announcements on the bottom of the screen quite regularly. It is always the same dwarf, a grower/brewer currently hanging out in the dining room.

The announcement does not list the profession, or any reason for the announcement; it merely gives the dwarf's name.

I, too, am getting this, on a random fisherdwarf and an immigrant I've drafted into the military. I'm wondering if it's associated with some kind of nicknames bug, since I have one or two dwarves whose default, seemingly-unerasable nickname is the first five or six characters of their actual name. They are then displayed as just that nickname in lists (like on the military screen or in an announcement of a job cancellation), no profession or anything else.

Turn off Truetype font support in init.txt - this is the same as the behavior noted in 0003246.

Good point, this only happens in TTF mode, that should be noted here.

it's caused by the TTF file lacking the characters with umlauts and other symbols, such as the male/female ones.

Actually, the font does contain the accented characters, but the truetype display code in Dwarf Fortress seemingly isn't converting CP437 to Unicode properly - the accented characters have completely different codepoints in CP437 versus Unicode or Latin-1 (for example, "รป" is character 150 in CP437 but is character 251/U+00FB in Latin-1/Unicode).
