Attaching another issue related to this, a dwarf using the smelter will produce Iron fine, but when it comes to pig iron they will bring the resources to the smelter and then proceed to cancel the job stating Job item lost or destroyed.

i can confirm the problem for linux as well
the items affected all to need more than one bar of metal (or coal in the case of pig iron)
the problem seems to be that an item is selected twice for the job and thus can't be found when looking for it the second time

I got this spam messages as well, here with copper grates. Some jobs are cancelled, but still some grates were produced.

Seeing this also for armor stands and weapon racks.

I uploaded a save at http://dffd.wimbli.com/file.php?id=10281 [^] . In that save, unsuspending the forge copper breastplate job should show this happening.
