I did some more testing. The bug is a lot more general than I believed. It can be reproduced by connecting two gtk2 Freeciv clients to the same local server, click observe in one client and pressing "start" in the other.

  • trunk (SVN revision 22818) built on on Debian Wheezy AMD64.
  • built without all possible optional build dependencies
  • observing client: gtk
  • playing client: my recording system[11 playing the attached record.

How to reproduce:
1. In a console in the Freeciv directory run
2. In another console in the same directory run
./fcgui -a -n spy
3. Press "Observe" in the client that opens
4. In another console in the Freeciv recorder directory run
./playRecord --file=FreecivCrasher.fct

Playing back the record without an observer won't crash the server.
