Hmmm it appears I may have been too hasty in my diagnosis and bug
report. It does seem to be related to hostile units nearby which makes
me suspect that it is a feature. If this is the case then I'm sorry for
filing a bug report about it, but I think it should be changed. Having
to re-assign 20 workers each turn in three cities is a major pain
(imagine if I had lots more cities!). As I recall, Civ 2 used to only
de-assign the workers from the squares occupied by the hostile units,
and then it would automatically re-assign them afterwards. Let me know
if there is a good reason not to do this!
