I did not. Any munging was accomplished by Freeciv. Could be as
simple as a string pointer error somewhere, given that the bizarre
character is at the end of the string.
I don't know if it's related, but Freeciv GTK consistently fails on
Vista after the game has been going a long time. The GUI windows
change colors and become illegible like they're being bitblitted
incorrectly, then civclient freezes. For this reason I always play
with "set saveturns 1". After such a failure, I can always load the
most recent autosaved game. I haven't submitted the bug because I
don't have a deterministic reproducer for it. I just know that it
will happen after several hours of play. I guess my point is, Freeciv
can munge things.
