Summary0001762: Dwarf inherits her deceased husband's rations (570 of them)
DescriptionI was looking into why my entire fortress was suddenly starving, and discovered that all the prepared food belongs to Amost Sanrebas ("Ownercaves"!), Planter.

Apparently, this does not extend to unprepared food items, like plants and meat. Though since everyone's starving, they must not want to eat that either.

Looking at Ms. Sanrebas, she owns 570 items total. The owned items are found on various stockpiles. Other item types are, to the best of my knowledge, not affected.

Is she insane and a member of the military? See 0001608.

No, she was neither. However, she had the "cook" labor, and would cook in one of the kitchens. The kitchen was cluttered (I had 10+ idlers and plenty of space on piles, yet no one would haul it out), but I don't know if that was her fault or someone else's. She couldn't have been cooking for long, though, since she hadn't achieved any cooking skill.

I'm saying "was", because I confined her (and her baby) to a burrow out in the woods. The items were released on her goblin-induced death, and the rest of the fortress' occupants could resume going about their business.

Also, counts of both meat, fish, plant and other food items went back up, so I guess I was wrong earlier about her not owning other item types. Still looks like only food, though. Maybe at some point she was repeatedly trying and failing to eat, though I don't have a clue what would cause her to do that. I certainly didn't get 500 interruption messages.

Do you have a save where she's still claiming new food items? Was she actually eating any food? Did she have any weird injuries?

I have several related autobackup saves, so I went back and looked at one. She's eating and doesn't have any injuries. I think I solved it, though:

She's listed as married to a deceased metalcrafter - Morul Rakustestil - who went insane at some point. Digging through the message log, I found reams of "Morul Rakustestil cancels Get Provisions: Too insane". He's also (still) listed as a militia member.

So I guess the items he stole were transferred to his wife when he died, and this is just bug 0001608 in disguise.

By the way, many of the "Get Provisions" failures are immediately followed by "A masterwork of Zuglar Sokanbim has been lost!". Zuglar is my high master cook, so I assume the buggy behavior also causes food defacement.

Thanks for the fast triage response :)

Ah okay, thanks for investigating. I'm leaving this one open because I'm not sure whether it's intentional that people inherit their spouse's rations, regardless of the number.

If they are a rational amount of rations, does it matter if they do get inherited?
