0009833: Moody dwarf scared from the workshop doesn't return to claimed workshop, goes insane after some time
A ranger has been posessed, claimed a craftsdwarf's workshop, picked up all neccessary items, started working, and then one of war animals reverted to a wild state and scared the fellow away. The dwarf didn't return to the workshop, standed in one place and went stark raving mad after some tine.
1. Have a strange mood.
2. Let the moody dwarf collect all neccessary materials and start construction.
3. Make a hostile creature scare the moody dwarf from his workshop.
4. The dwarf won't return to the workshop and will go insane after some time.

I've just had this happen to me. A kobold scared him off his workshop and now he's sitting down in a meeting area.
