0000853: "No job" dwarf not counted as idle
I seem to have a stoneworker dwarf who sits idly in the meeting area doing nothing with "no job" listed in his general menu, while my idle dwarf indicator says 0 dwarfs are idle. Checking my units list, all my dwarfs are hard at work except for that one stoneworker.

I checked his labor preferences as well as his professions menu to make sure everything is enabled but he won't work at all. I am unable to make him do any work at all though he is a squad member and appears to follow squad orders normally.
No tags attached.
