Recently I somehow got into a state where the client showed a unit as
(L)oaded, but there was no transport present; I'd previously loaded and
unloaded it from a transport, then moved the transport. Depending precisely
how I viewed the transport, it either thought it had the unit on board or
didn't. The unit could not be unloaded to clear this state.

Unfortunately it doesn't reproduce from a savegame, so this bug will have to
be a collector for other instances, but the attached screenshot should show
something is up (Diplomat loaded on... what?)

What I did was something like:
* Load a bunch of units including a Diplomat onto the Galleon, in a city.
* Changed my mind about the Diplomat and (tried to) unload it. (Possibly I did
something wrong/unusual at the point, I wasn't paying close attention.)
* Moved the Galleon out of the city.
* Started noticing weirdness in the client display.

It's possible this is a client-side issue (or that the server didn't send
enough info to the client).

This is S2_4 r21463 (experimental ruleset, Gtk2 client). I'm guessing it was
introduced by recursive-transports or the unit select dialog.
