Actually, this sounds like the same bug that several others have
reported.  The most useful debugging information you could give would be
whether this works with version 10 of the patch (freeciv-test inclues
version 8), but I don't have an appropriate diff available yet.

If you have time, try downloading the current cvs and the seperate conndlg
patch and testing those together (if it doesn't apply cleanly, which I
vaguely remember, try getting the January 26th snapshot, which is what I
diffed it off.

BTK: the random characters are debugging flags I forgot to take out.

If you *don't* consider sharing information to be morally equivalent to 
kidnapping and murder on the high seas, you probably shouldn't use the
phrase "software piracy."
