I wasn't able to reproduce any delays after "leaving" a game and starting a new one / trying to load a savegame on Windows; upon "leaving", the freeciv-server process went away promptly and there was no trouble bringing up the save game list.

Yes, when "leaving" a game to "load" a game it hangs, one needs to "quit" (a less desirable process altogether, unless you count the hang bug). When looking at the processes, the server actually takes quite some time to kill itself, i guess until it finally lets go we cannot start again?

When it first failed, had you been playing freeciv, left the game, and then tried to load the savegame?

I vaguely wonder if the reports about problems on windows in shutting down the server and these savegame loading problems on windows are related. Maybe there's previous server left running, and client connects to that...

2.4.0-RC1 on Windows loads save files when I try, so there must be something different about your and my setups.

Can you give more detail? In particular, an example of a save file that you find 2.4.0-RC1 can't load would be helpful.

Also, what exactly happens when you try to load a save file?

Seems we have to quit and then restart FreeCiv to get the savegame page to show up.
