0001871: Removing a construction after reclaim doesn't reveal hidden areas
Here's what happened: I made a fort, and breached the caverns, this was my first successful enough to explore them. After what I now call the Great Crundle Massacre, I walled up the fort. As it was in a spiral, I abandoned and reclaimed, making it very successful. I'm at the point where I can un-wall the entry to the Caves, but it didn't reveal it on removing the wall, dumping the left stone, or making or loading a cage trap on that spot.

Upon mining the wall NEXT to all this, the whole level exploded in color, with no notification of finding Caverns, or any flood of "You Have Struck"s.
No tags attached.

Yup, this one's a holdover (I'm not sure why there were two entries in the old system):

# 001015 □ [dwarf mode][jobs][constructions] (http://www.bay12games.com/forum/index.php?topic=24195.0 [^]) removing a constructed wall in a reclaimed fort does not reveal the hidden areas beyond properly
# 001080 □ [dwarf mode][jobs][constructions] (http://www.bay12games.com/forum/index.php?topic=32170.0 [^]) removing constructions does not remove hidden areas after reclaim

I'm good at finding holdovers, aren't I? :P
