the attached savegame shows two problems with the current code

1. near Zagreb a fortress is build. In the next turn the city will be disbanded into a settler but the territory will still be claimed. Another nation can't build new cities within this area. First the fortress has to be claimed by a unit. (I found this in the longturn Ltex game; especially bad if this is an island there all tiles are claimed and you have only a settler on the boat)

2. The territory claimed by the city Split is expanded using only fortresses. This is a little bit strange as no 'manpower' (cities, military units) are needed for this.

unrelated but also a bug:

The settler build in Zagred appears in Osijek (teleportation of units?); a possible solution is in bugs #14037

(file #6573)

When I have been implementing generic bases code, I have considered border claiming bases to be owned by the nation owning the tile. Note that base without owner (possible in scenario game) does not compete with other border claiming sources except that base tile itself cannot be claimed without actually visiting it.

at the moment bases claim territory unconditional. I
think they should only do it, if a unit is inside of
the base. If the base is unmanned nobody claims
anythink because the base (as building on the map)
does not belong to any nation.
