This is a known problem and I have left a FIXME (for myself :\) to
that effect in handle_edit_territory. Right now all that function
does is change the ownership of the tile to the given player via
tile_set_owner. The problem is that the border system seems to rely
on some extra data structures and auxillary functions that are
entangled with vision sites and specific game rules. It is not clear
how the editor can just "make one tile part of this player's
territory" without producing some wierd inconsistencies in the
latter (like a tile that remains unfogged even when no cities or
units are nearby).

Well, maybe I just need to better understand the current border
system. I'll have a look as time permits.
