0008012: uncollected spider webs count as silk thread in stocks list
I noticed this after looking how much thread I have available, and it listed cave spider webs as thread, making the overall tread count huge over time. Current tread count in stock screen is well over 3000. Apparently the cavern doesn't see much traffic as they web basically everything on there over time (first cavern). Can be seen in this save: http://dffd.wimbli.com/file.php?id=9393 [^]
Same save as in the Military sock/boot thingy.

This is still confirmed to exist in version 44.12. Also now that we have conditional orders in the manager screen this causes a problem with a loom job that will weave the silk if there is available silk to weave. Since it sees all the webs as available the condition will read true even if there is no thread for the weavers to weave. This will then cause job cancel announcements.

As far as I know, webs have always showed up in the Stocks screen, and when you switch to Detail mode it lists them as "web" instead of "thread".

If you're having trouble with conditional orders, edit the flags on the item condition - the "collected" option will exclude webs, and "undisturbed" will likewise exclude everything but webs. In fact, if you press "r" to "Add conditions from reagents/materials", it will do this for you automatically.
