Thank you for your response. after some fiddling, I found that it wasn't
"aifill" causing problems, it was "mapsize". It only woks if the setting is
less than or equal to 30 (the maximum setting for previous releases of
freeciv). Oddly enough, it can be greater than 30 if "aifill" is 5,
(although I am unable to reproduce this outcome). Any other time it
disconnects from my local server with a "read error."
As for my system, it is Windows XP Service Pack 3.
I will also report this bug on the bug tracking system.
