Summary0008700: Trees can't be designated for cutting when other part of given tree is already designated for that
DescriptionI have a tree which sometimes refuses to be designed for cutting. The tree is located just west of my south gate. The place is noted with "# - The Unfellable Tree". It is an apricot tree.

I was guessing it is somehow caused by those walls nearby but it seems to be rather done by other designations: one of his upper branches is already designated for cutting but is inaccessible.
Steps To ReproduceDesignate some upper branch ("XXX tree trunk" tile) for chopping down
Try changing the cutting place with designation of other branch of given tree
Additional InformationI have tried overriding the already designated branch with another cut designation and removing it and again designating it on other branch of tree.
Removing and redesignating seem to repair: I can then change cutting place just by designating other branch (= "apricot tree trunk").

But saved state shows a designation which doesn't allow this. The cutting place can't be changed until you remove the old designation AFAIK.

I find this change in behaviour somewhat useful. First, it gives you a visual warning that you have designated a tree twice - something that can kill woodcutters depending on which z-level is targeted. Second it makes it easier to mass designate large areas of forest land on hill-sides. Simply select the lowest z-level first in a big rectangle, then repeat 1 z-level up until all trees are selected.

My point was it doesn't seem to be stable:
1) I can't change the cutting place in the current state of state.
2) Once I remove current designation and designate again, I suddenly can change the cutting place.
3) But sometimes even after removing the current designation and changing the cutting place several times, it "freezes" the cutting place again and I am back at 1)

And I don't know why it switches its behaviour like this.
