         Planned Release: 



The Gtk clients move along in the diplomat queue as soon as an action is
chosen no matter if follow up questions are expected or not. Bug #21636 is
caused by this. The Xaw, Qt and SDL clients waits for follow up questions on
diplomat actions that have those (bribe, incite, targeted sabotage and
targeted spy) before moving on in the queue. The 3 first actions I just
mentioned ask the follow up questions after the server has replied. If the
server don't reply they won't move on in the diplomat queue. At the moment
this is a minor issue: Should a new item be added to the diplomat queue (user
ask about diplomat action against current tile or the server request a
clarification about what a move means) it will start again.

Possible solutions:
* Add a time out
* making them behave like the Gtk client (move on in the queue before follow
up questions) after bug #21636 are fixed
* make sure that the server always reply and the common client code always
* use the focus queue, ask on focus
