Summary0005072: Removing designations doesn't cancel jobs that have already been claimed by dwarves
DescriptionWhen I designate an area and a miner targets it (so it's flashing) and I undesignate the rock face, the mine goes ahead and digs it anyway.
Steps To Reproduce1) Designate square to be dug out
2) Wait until a miner is on the way
3) Undesignate the square
4) Watch as the square is dug out anyhow
TagsNo tags attached.

0004854 got worse?

Confirming this. If, for example, a miner is on his way to mine square X, removing the mine designation from square X will not cancel the mining job and the square will be mined.

I like this when doing mass plant gathering or tree-cutting, and haven't seen it happen in mining yet.. but I can imagine it'd be horrible if it happened at the wrong time and wrong place.

I can confirm seeing it on plant gathering and tree-cutting, by the way.

Confirmed for designating the removal of constructions.

Confirming this. Also becomes a real issue when mining is interrupted by a wild animal.

Miner1 moves towards square X.
Animal near square X interrupts miner1 who cancels job and runs away.
Square X immediately selected as active for mining by Miner2.
Miner2 moves towards square X.
Animal near square X interrupts miner2 who cancels job and runs away...

You can get your miners locked in a cycle, with all of them trying to mine the same square and getting chased away from it.

The only way I have found to undesignate the in progress square is to undesignate the blank square one z-level below it.

This is fixed for next time.
