When setting yellow alert priority on a piece of work, such as digging or building, dupes ignore their personal task schedules.
Previously this only happened in red alert work mode, and is clearly a bug. There is no practical difference between yellow alert and red alert now as far as I can tell now. Yellow alert is basically useless now, compared to what it used to be.
Please make dupes follow their schedules while in yellow alert again.
I am on version U39-490405-50.
Edit: I'll add quickly, in case someone wonders "why does that matter?": It causes a yellow alert order for a mid-sized or larger build to go from what was previously a fairly safe thing to do, into something that has very high odds of starving your dupes to death if they happen to start it with a low calorie status or if the job takes more than 1-2 cycles. Yellow alert used to be a very convenient "quickly finish this so I can plan the next stage of the build" button.
Create a large dig order at priority yellow alert, wait for dupes to ignore their work schedule.
