I think we should close this one as it seems to be fixed now, even to the point where the exact opposite outcome was reported as a bug here:

I'm setting this to "in progress" again since there has been a change in behavior of multiplayer game creation (likely caused by this).
Create a local mp game and leave some sides empty, this causes them to not be shown in the status table 1.10.1 but they appear in trunk. It is probably not so a good idea to change this behavior.

If a [side] is configured with controller=null then it is not shown in the status table. While this makes sense for sides that are not yet present on the board, there is another setting to handle that (hidden=). Plus, it does not particularly suit a present-yet-dormant side, particularly if fog or shroud is enabled (possibly making the status table the only way for the player to be aware that the side exists).

For what it's worth, using :inspect shows that the side's hidden= setting is still no; you just get the same result (not shown in the status window). Using [modify_side] to change the controller to "ai" causes the side to be shown in the status window.
