In general we need to think how we display current turn situation / forecast for next turn. Currently the disorder icon is shown when ever disorder is forecast for next turn. There's no way to tell if disorder rules (such as lowered inciting costs) apply to city currently.

It is irritating/ confusing when a city run by the governor is in peace at the end of a turn, turn processing causes disorder, the governor restores peace, and the player's actions w.r.t. that city are impaired. Perhaps it would be less irritating/ confusing if disorder caused by turn processing disengaged the governor, and provided an explanation in the message pane for the cause of disorder and a statement that the governor has been disengaged.

As I have heard this is a feature, not a bug. If a city is in disorder nothing works until the order is restored.

Thanks for Freeciv! :-)

Please see attached saved game freeciv-T0242-Y01710-manual.sav.bz2. Note the city of Aarhus, which is under governor control. Pressing "Turn Done" will cause the Messages tab to show:

Civil disorder in Aarhus

Looking at the View or Cities tabs indicates that Aarhus is in peace. Attempting to purchase the Stealth Bomber will cause the Messages tab to show:

Can't buy units when city is in disorder

Game should allow the player to purchase the improvement or unit when the governor has restored peace.
