See also patch #6518, I think?

Is this with borders=SEE_INSIDE, or not? (If not, cf bug #17301.)

Even with SEE_INSIDE, you can end with the map showing fogged tiles supposedly inside your borders -- since you know from settings that can't happen, you can deduce that you lost the tile, but you shouldn't need to make such subtle deductions.
I've been thinking that we could change it so that tile ownership changes before the tile is fogged, so you can see (a) that it's not yours any more, (b) who if anyone stole it from you.

Foggedborders applies even to own borders.

1. Player 1 has fortress claiming borders, but no vision of the area
2. Player 2 walks to fortress
3. Both players see area as their own

I came across this when trying to test if there's another bug like I think there is. When fortress acts as watchtower, old owner loses vision before borders, so (s)he will not see the latter.
