0006077: Dwarf gets in his own way while constructing wall
A dwarf assigned to construct a wall attempts to do so from the square in which the wall is being built. This results in the job being suspended due to a creature occupying the construction square.
The particular situation where this occurred was one where I had two ramps coming up from z-1 and was trying to build a wall to force water to go in a diagonal. With 'r' representing a ramp coming up from below, x representing a vacant space in the current z level, and W representing the position of the desired wall, the situation looked like this:


Such that water would flow up one ramp, be z-level capped, and flow down the other ramp. I tried building temporary floors on top of both ramps, but the dwarf continued to insist upon standing in the square in which the wall was to be built.
No tags attached.
