0000388: Military units give incorrect task information
After giving my squad orders to attack a Drathla, the squad's task still appeared as different variations of the training task (learning about dodging, teaching dodging ect.) The squad chased down and killed the Drathla, but the faulty task display (u) remained.
1.Create Four-Man Squad
2.Train with squad

If you disband your squad do the dwarfs return to civilian life, or do they stay forever performing 'no job' or training?

Do you have a save that reproduces this problem in 31.10? If so, it would be helpful to upload the save to http://dffd.wimbli.com/ [^]

Reopening per 0008908
I'm going to say this isn't actually a duplicate of 0000605, since this appears to be more of a display issue. A save would still be helpful.

In this save, the swordsdwarf Nish Morulthestar is currently en route to carry out an order to kill a cave blob in the 3rd cavern layer. His reported job is "Go to sparring match." For the beginning of the trek down below, his reported job was "Go to combat training," which I believe was in reference to a dodging demonstration that has since concluded.

Here is another save that may show this bug. In this one, the lasher Dastot Letmoslokum has orders to kill a group of troglodytes in the 1st cavern layer. His listed task shows his current orders, however he will instead return to his squad's training barracks. After that he goes to fulfill the order. I'm not certain that this one is the same bug. After having previously completed a kill order, he reverted to his civilian job title and then was immediately ordered to kill the trogs. It's probable that he was going to take an individual combat drill task, which was then interrupted, and then had to "tag in" at the barracks before the new order would be initiated. If so, then it may be an iteration of 0008902 or 0003470, or perhaps an entirely different bug. If it is not this bug, it is probably related.
