0007876: Dwarves do not go around constructed walls that were built in their path
Not sure how to explain this one, so here is a visual.

|☻+++o| <- The dwarf is trying to construct x
|o+++o| <- This wall was built in front of him a few seconds ago

In a long hallway I am building walls next to natural walls.
The slowest of my dwarves often get stuck in this situation and he does not think to redo his path after the wall is built in his way.
Make a long tunnel and line the cave walls with constructed walls.
Have several dwarves build the walls.
If one of the dwarves building is much slower than the others, it is more likely to happen.
Can provide save if needed.
Suspending and unsuspending the wall fixes it.
No tags attached.

Are you sure you're running 0.40.06? This sounds like 0006842, which was fixed in that release.

Yup, its 0.40.06.
Newly generated world, no old saves.

Yeah, please upload a save that demonstrates the problem to http://dffd.wimbli.com/ [^] and post the link here.

Right away you'll see the engraver trying to path past a wall.
It should also start happening as the dwarves construct the walls.
