I have a number of <dwarf> cancels <job>: Could not find path announcements. For example, the job might be "load stone trap".

When I recentre on the dwarf which produced this failure, the dwarf is somewhere distant from the task they are trying to accomplish.

How, in this specific example for a trap, and for similar other pathfinding failures (e.g. collect cobwebs etc), can I find the target location?

Assuming v50 isnt too different from v47, you should have a list of all active and pending jobs listing relevant dwarves, buildings, and status. On this list, you could potentially have "Load stone trap" listed with a "suspended" status.

In version 50, this list should be available at Labor Menu [y] → Work details tab according to this page
