Server should search for start positions in a deterministic manner instead of
current random placement. That way server would not abort because of starting
positions allocation failure nearly as often as currently.

Failures to allocate start positions can sometimes be reproduced with default

It happens constantly with Alien ruleset (
http://www.cazfi.net/freeciv/alien/ ) since there terrains native to starting
units are rare. Alien ruleset might be useful in testing rewrite of starting
position placement.
