0000969: Can set ridiculous amount of orders for a single month
There doesn't seem to be a limit on the amount of orders you can set for a single month in the squad schedule screen. Or the number of times you can set the "train" order either.
1. Go to the schedule screen.
2. Add an order.
3. Repeat ad nauseum
Pretty minor, although I do have to wonder how a squad would react to having 17 different orders. Are they prioritized in anyway?

May not be a bug (unless if you can crash after a couple hundred). Does the squad randomly pick? If the minimum soldier per-order was 1-2 could you have 5-10 orders randomly selected from a list of 15-20?

I can see wanting to make some rather erratic orders for a defense force to cover a larger ground and maybe catch that thief/snatcher off-guard. Later the ambush party's AI might be better so static preset patrols may end up ineffective.

Doesn't sound like a bug to me.
