I'm going to guess that a good solution to this involves changing the network protocol.
Removing 2.4.0 target.

Actually, I strongly think that ruleset should look like tilespec files. There should be a general file (like "default.ruleset") that include all others "default/*.ruleset". And only *.ruleset files should be listed in the client (or maybe a field named "name".

On the other side, the server should not say what is the ruleset directory but its actual name (like at client side).

I have a patch for this but it's really not good as two distinct things are mixed here. Server sends information about rulesetdir (ruleset name), but client lists .serv files. Often the two are the same, but not necessarily. Recent change to rename default ruleset as "classic", but keeping "default.serv" made this broken even with datas included in main freeciv distribution.
I have several .serv files that actually load same ruleset, but set server settings differently...

See also bug #16913 for AI level combo. 'aifill' can be problematic too.

When you change the ruleset using the /rulesetdir command or loading a scenario or savegame, the combo box stays at "default".
