That's an interesting point, but I'm not sure that I understand
that fully. Maybe you can explain a bit more? - I'd think the bug
is that the AI does its moves at the *end* of a round, whilst the
goto - *all* the goto AFAIK - is performed at the *beginning* of
a round. So, if you make the AI move at the *beginning* of a round,
just before the general goto execution, this nasty problem ("moves
twice") with the AI (and barbarians) could be resolved.
Or am I wrong? And how? How does the latency affect this?
