So, my guess is that the intended effect of 'Unload' would be that the
unloaded unit stays in place when the transport/carrier moves. Wouldn't
this be disastrous if the unloaded unit was a non-airborne one, where
you could easily lose it at sea if you unloaded and then moved your
transport without moving the unloaded unit to safe ground first? IMO the
only intuitive way of unloading a transport or carrier is to select the
loaded unit from the stack and then move it to an adjacent tile.
On the other hand, if you move your transport/carrier to a port city,
you get a different 'Unload transport' (Shift-U) command that works
fine. This also seems to me the only case where you'd want to actually
unload transported units onto the tile the transport occupies, for
example to defend the city in question.
In the end, I don't see what good the 'Unload' command would do even if
it worked and suggest we just get rid of it.
