This is an ugly bug. It appears only, when
- you play in german locale, maybe some other locales
- you have a small map
- you are in a later game phase where more terrain is irrigated/mined
and has (rail)roads
In this case, there is very often a resize of the left status panel,
causing a map resize and a map 'jump' to the right, for any single
move/step a unit performs. Additionally, in some special cases, you
get into a resize loop, where one resize causes the next :-(
In all, it makes the game nearly unplayable.
This is an old bug - as you can see from the number. It has been
reportedseveral times, and several attempts have been made so far to
fix it, even by me.
A solution that can be successful is, AFAICS, twofold:
- break up the terrain description in the left status bar into
several lines, but avoiding to go too far down (causing a vertical
- block any resize in direction to a *smaller* left status bar
Changing the german translation is not an acceptable fix.
