Curiously, water dumped onto a magma flow with magma on top of it will '''not''' turn it into obsidian; rather the magma is simply removed.  At the bottom of a magma reservoir with only small amounts of water falling in, such a tile can change from 7/7 to 0/7 and back in a few single step increments with the "." key.  A construction (such as a stairway up) can be designated atop the magma flow when it is momentarily free of magma due to water falling from above.  Strangest of all, once designated, a dwarf can build this construction unhindered, without any job cancellations.  Once the construction is present, magma and water can react in the square, destroying the construction and converting the square into unmined obsidian.

These odd exceptions to the normal rules mean that dwarves on a level partially filled with water can (with much effort) completely wall off the region surrounding some [[adamantine|special point of interest]], eventually removing ''all'' the magma from a large area despite the failure of the usual magma-water interaction.

If the stone floor which replaces a magma ramp under a built and removed construction is channeled into a second time, the ramp below becomes visible from above.  Unfortunately, for some reason dwarves still cannot descend into this square with the ramp, nor can they ascend out of it should they find themselves somehow there.  A dwarf dumped into the space, say, by a remote controlled hatch "accident", cannot construct anything because the adjacent squares remain semi-molten rock, and won't turn to ramps if channelled from above.  Therefore an up/down stairway ''cannot'' be constructed in this space, even if it is beneath another up/down stairway.
