- The server may randomly give up and terminate when failing to allocate starting positions for a new game. Try reducing the number of players or increase the map size.
- Your City Governor settings are only sent to the server when you press turn done or quit your client, and therefore changes you make to the Governor in the same turn as a manual game save will be lost.
- Aircraft will do kamikaze attacks against enemy units if the autoattack option is set.
- Focus on active unit is sometimes lost during automove and you have to manually press to center on it.
- The Windows Gtk client is seriously broken in many ways for Chinese, Japanese, and Korean (CJK) locales.
This is due to a Gtk bug (668239), which has long since been fixed, but the official Windows Gtk packages are outdated (707760).
