I imagine you have a hidden goblin kidnapper afoot and it's erroneously displaying his job.

I have this too. I don't think its a hidden snatcher; I my last snatcher several months ago; he got throttled, and I got a strange error message (for which see 0000393), so it's unlikely that a snatcher has hung around that long.

The save in 0001398 has this bug as well.

Okay, this should be fixed up for 0.31.07. When the kidnap job is overwritten by the other job, it floats free from the goblin, and then the game no longer recognizes it as a hostile, unlistable job. Those jobs will still linger in old saves right now, but they don't do any harm there, and there shouldn't be any new ones.
