Thanks to Pille for the savegame!!!

The culprit is fstk.  It has a choice of two cities, one within one turn 
and one 2 turns away.  Both undefended.  Now comes the surprise!

fstk selects the furthest city since it predicts that the city will have
time to build a (crap) defender which will be minced by the Armour but the
Armour will be able to get kudos for both the city and the defender!!

Then the Armour starts moving in the direction of the furthest city, 
stumbles upon the nearest, stops bewildered.  Next turn the city is picked 
up by ai_unit_rampage, I guess.

Currently I am thinking what is the best way to fix it (the fstk).

In particular if you have a big but city distance 2 turns away (and the 
best defender they can build doesn't have a chance against you) and an 
undefended but small city distance 1, which do you go for?


P.S. fstk is "find_something_to_kill", btw :)
