Summary0002511: Assigning orders to dwarves in squads individually causes crash when next attempting to view squads
DescriptionHaving a squad of 10 dwarves total, I stationed 5 of them in one location and 5 in another. When I next attempted to order them around via the squad menu, DF froze. This is repeated when I attempted to station only a few dwarves with the rest not active at all. Also occurs when, having stationed the group as a squad together, attempting to cancel all their orders via individual selection (incidentally, they were still listed as being stationed (squad) after given individual cancel orders, as opposed to no longer flashing Stationed if the order is cancelled at the squad level).

Near as I can tell they will obey the individual orders - at least as far as moving and killing, if not cancelling a squad station order - but you will be unable to give any squad another order afterward.
Steps To ReproduceForm a squad of more than one dwarf.
[s]quads - [p] Select Individuals
Give any number of dwarves an order via individual command versus from the squad level
Leave the squads menu
Attempt to enter [s]quads again, DF freezes
Additional InformationFirst occurred while cleaning out the first cavern level, but occurs when the squad used is on the surface as well. All three cavern layers are partially exposed but the second and third are blocked off via constructions.

Mayday pack with dwarves slightly modified to eliminate attribute decay (though that does not seem to work right now anyway). World is fresh .08 gen.

Probably related to (0000337: crash when squads taken off Station) or its parent (0000706: Trying to access the squad screen mid-combat caused a complete game hang) but I think the issue is the individual orders and not the more general squads in combat or canceling station orders.

Yeah, it's 0000706. The connection with individual orders was already identified in child issues 0000869 and 0002347.
