Steps To Reproduceb-C-w

Here is a 40.07 save using wood that results in amber walls in all but the first tile (which used the appropriate material). [^]

Constructed fortifications also exhibit this behavior. Constructed floors, ramps, tracks, up stairs, down stairs, and up/down stairs do not.

One tile of the constructed wall is of the correct build material. The rest are "Unknown Material wall" or "Unknown Material Block wall". That's on Linux. Apparently people who encounter this bug on Windows(?) get walls made of a variety of random materials, in a plethora of colors. I suspect the game is using uninitialized memory for the materials.

Maybe an unintended consequence of the fix for 0001091?

Possibly, according to [^]

I can say that I have seen this too, useing rock blocks. Deconstructing the extra constructions dosent give anything.
Oh, I saw this on windows, incase that matters...
