0001071: Urist McSmelter/Weavy McCloth cancels Make Item: Needs 1000 Sub-Item
I've seen this take two forms-Urist McSmelter is cheerfully working away, making steel or pig iron bars, when a pair of wires cross and he screams "URIST MCMINER CANCELS MAKE STEEL BARS: NEEDS 1000 IRON BARS." He then buggers off to do something else.

The same thing happens when ordering a Clothier to make plant fiber bags-save "Needs 1500 cloth" instead.

Usually it's the last item in the queue, but I've seen the Clothier just plain refuse to make bags at all.
I haven't a clue. It's happened absolutely randomly every time.
It's annoying, and if I had a bigger fortress, would probably be catastrophic for my stocks.
No tags attached.
