Neither should be server settings.  That's the old way.  Most of these
have been gradually moved to the (newer) effects rulesets.

Definitely a ruleset bug.  There's some oddity with the V_INVIS layer and
various "hidden" test functions.  Probably later additions without
sufficient documentation.

Again, definitely a bug.

Interesting argument.  ZOC is changed considerably in civ3.  Bad design
decisions shouldn't be enshrined in perpetuity.

However, none of this is relevant to this ticket, which is on the path to
fixing crashing bugs....
