0002884: cancels store owned item: item inaccessible [every 5 seconds]
Kivish Logemsholid McPissmeoff cancels store owned item: Item inaccessible. [repeat over and over for months every 5 seconds]

I turned the map upside down and could not find an item that would be normally inaccessible. Dwarf is not limited to a burrow. No dwarf drowned AFAIK. The only items currently inaccessible seem to be some goblin items inside my magma pool, which are currently forbidden. Tried moving the dwarf to another room to no avail.

This is a fresh world, created in 0.31.12.

If at least I knew what is the damned item he is trying to store, but everytime he is on a different place on the map. It is driving me crazy, I swear I will kill this guy after this report!
Couldn't find a way to reproduce.
Expected results:
- the dwarf give up the item
- the dwarf at least stay close to the item he plans to get (so I could knew which one is it)
- the warning message mentions which item is it and maybe why it is inaccessible (door closed, under water, under magma etc)
- the dwarf furiously smashes his head on a wall every time he feel frustrated for not getting that item (so he can eventually die or forget the item and give me peace).

Problem is with Kivish Logemsholid, militia commander.

The item is a x(cave spider silk sock)x. I'm not sure it even exists anymore - it shows in the stocks screen, but when zoomed to, it takes you to a spot of magma.

He is also in a constant loop of claiming a (≡«bronze pick»≡) and storing it in a bin. He is in an inactive squad with 'indiv choice, melee' and has mining enabled.

How did you find that out? I wish I knew how to spot that socket spot, maybe I could find a way to open up the way for him to at least reach the spot.

You have to pause the game and step through slowly '.' - I did like 10-20 steps at a time - then check the jobs lists.

It will eventually put up a job and you will be able to see what the item is (hit enter on the job) before it gets assigned/canceled.

Then go to the stocks screen and find the item that is claimed by that person & zoom to it.

Might be related to the longstanding bug that things that got moved by a flow sometimes are somehow unlinked to some degree.
