Client can display completely bogus information about military unhappiness caused by units, since it tries to determine it itself with its limited knowledge. I have not checked all clients carefully, but from quick grepping it seems that broken code exist in all of them.

1. It gets value of effect EFT_MAKE_CONTENT_MIL to decide how many units get free upkeep. Client may end up displaying wrong number of units free of happiness upkeep
2. It calls city_unit_unhappiness() for each unit, which for units in fortress ends up checking if there's friendly city nearby. There could be allied city near that player does not know about (it would make sense that unknown cities would not lift unhappiness, but as server side does not work that way, client ends showing wrong information)
