0007993: Expedition Leader not appointed/appointable.
Somehow, after lots of FUN, I was left with my expedition leader and a child dwarf. The expedition leader was injured and the child did not attempt to feed/water him. After a time, he went insane. The child dwarf survived long enough until the next migrant wave. I now have no expedition leader and one is not being appointed to me. This also means that I cannot set up squad leaders, brokers, managers, etc.
Have two remaining dwarves: one child and one expedition leader. Have the expedition leader die. Profit?
No tags attached.

Just go in and assign the position to someone else. You can manually assign the noble rank.

I actually can't assign it manually.
