Error messages when placing (or, more directly, canceling placement of) items

Title: Error messages when canceling placement of items

Summary: I was placing chairs around tables, and some were not being placed, so I went over the ones still waiting in my stockpile and had them placed again, hoping that would be alright. One of them I think was in the same place that I had already set another chair to be placed (for there were no more empty spots around the tables, and I figured it would be alright since I was replacing all the chairs in the stockpile anyway). I ended up going to place one too many, I think, and so canceled that placement, I think by right-clicking. That’s when some error messages showed up (Fig. 1).

Steps to reproduce: It may depend on the failed original placements, in which case you would first have to wait for those to occur. If not, just place items that are already queued up to be placed again, and/or cancel a placement by right-clicking. It may further depend on the preceding placement over an already existing blueprint (even in the absence of an actual placement order there [as I had re-designated all chairs to be placed without overlap]).

Expected results: Items would be placed to begin with, of course. Failing that, upon re-designating placements of items, the items would be placed on their new destinations (and the original blueprints would disappear, but that’s another issue that I believe was already known before), and there would be no error messages when placing or canceling placements.
