0000154: Pond zone removed itself leaving forgotten buckets
I assigned some dwarves to fill a small pond area for a small perpetual motion device. I then went away to do other things ignoring them for a time. When I returned to check on things....

I saw that the zone had removed itself, it was no longer an activity zone.

I saw four buckets on the ground near the lake they were drawing water from.

I saw that my furniture stockpile was half empty. With 12 idle dwarves this leaves no excuse for them not to be putting the buckets away.

Possible other factor... I am reminded that there are alligators in the area. I should do something about that and test further.

I hunted down all the alligators, but the forgotten buckets stayed forgotten. nothing I could do seemed to be able to convince to dwarves to recover the buckets.

Any way to reproduce the zone disappearance?

I'll update if I figure out how to reproduce it. Several attempts, no luck so far.

simply filling a pond doesn't remove itself. I'm thinking it may have been the alligators, either that or I'm simply insane. I'll try to reproduce it when I can.
