See, I don't think it should be.
The experimental ruleset has gold_upkeep_style=1, meaning that unit gold
upkeep is paid for "by the nation". By my argument in bug #18767 comment 12
<http://gna.org/bugs/index.php?18767#comment12>, I think that means the city
governor shouldn't be considering the unit upkeep at all.
Looking at the savegame, in all these cases the total building costs are
greater than 20:
* Visby: 24 gold (1 taxman)
* Karlstad, Zhen, Zwickau: 27 gold (1 taxman)
* Song: 30 gold (2 taxmen)
* Malmö: 35 gold (2 taxmen)
* Qiongshi: 36 gold (3 taxmen)
The CMA gold minimal surplus is -20 (the minimum). Could it simply be that the
extra buildings required to play the experimental ruleset successfully
(Hospital, Genetic Lab etc) are tipping you over a gold threshold (20)
compared to the default ruleset?
Changing gold_upkeep_style to 2 gets rid of the taxmen, supporting this
theory. If so, I think this is a duplicate of bug #18767.
(I notice you're getting "Did not find a cm solution in 25000 iterations for
Graudenz." (bug #19311) But that's not one of the cities you're complaining
about, so not relevant.)
