Summary0008908: Military dwarves with station or kill orders often report the incorrect job in the units list and v - g.
DescriptionWhen given an order to station in a or kill something, an individual dwarf will sometimes show "Go to combat training" as their active job. Conversely, a dwarf will sometimes show the order they were given as the active job while going to do something else.
Steps To ReproduceFor the first case, it can usually be reproduced by taking a dwarf that is participating in a demonstration and sending that dwarf (alone) to perform a station or kill order. In the second case, allowing a dwarf to complete a kill order (resulting in a "Urist McOffdutynow has become a cheesemaker" announcement) and then giving the same dwarf a new task will usually result in them showing the job as active while they go to perform another task.
Additional InformationI have seen this consistently in every one of my .40.x forts. The former case seems to happen much more often than the latter.
In the latter case where a dwarf shows that they are performing the order but have actually left to do something else, there is no announcement to indicate that they are not performing the job. Something to the effect of "Dastot Letmoslokum cancels kill troglodytes: hungry." would be useful, along with actually clearing the job from their status in the u and v screens.
