0001257: Dwarves try to 'complete' Attend Party and refuse to eat, drink, or sleep
This may not be considered a bug, but the 'keep working' process should not apply to Attend Party. Since some parties go on forever, the dwarves complain about thirst/dehydration/hunger/starvation/drowsiness a lot (often all of them). The resulting unhappiness usually more than removes the happy party thoughts, which is annoying.

I've seen this happen too. Probably most players have.

As a member of "most players," I agree.

This and other unimportant long-duration jobs should be cast aside for food/drink/sleep for 0.31.07.
