0006722: Manager climbs a tree instead of going to office when management jobs are assigned.
I created a Noble dwarf that has the tasks of managing, brokering(is that a word?) and bookkeeping.

For this task, the dwarf needs a Meager Office, so I assigned a small room with door, table and chair to the dwarf as an office.

However, whenever the dwarf doesn't have any other tasks and wants to manage/bookkeep, instead of going to his office he finds a tree and climbs it, then gets stuck in the treetop and thinks no office is in existance.

This also spams the following announcement:
Nil Umk├╗buk, manager cancels Update Stockpile Records: Need office.

This message was instantly repeated 1788 times.

When I assigned a woodcutter to cut down the tree the dwarf was in, the dwarf ran off to find a different tree, climbed it and started spamming the announcement again.
Create a dwarf with Appraisal, Broker and Bookkeeper skill, assign the tree tasks to him and give him an office.
Early in the game, dwarves have not gone mad (yet).
Vanilla game, no modifications whatsoever.

Do you have a save game you can upload?

Seems the dwarf finally found his office after cutting down the trees he has occupied, will still post the save so you can see what's going on.

Do note the amount of job cancelation messages.

And, after the manager found his office, the woodcutter dwarf climbed the tree and could not path anywhere.

I think a better description for this bug would be:

"Dwarves climb into trees when attempting to path to a job or activity, then can't path to the job and gets stuck."
