Sat Feb 8 15:41:28 2014, original submission:

Currently, if a combat event (attacker/defender hits) interrupts a combat by invalidating one of units, damage will have gone through, but slow, poison, drain, and petrify will not. However, they display as if they did (see the separate code at actions/attack.cpp 950-975 vs. 1062-1086).

This is nonintuitive for an add-on designer, and it is difficult to compensate for. Unless the add-on completely duplicates the code that determines when specials are active, this behavior prevents the add-on from ending a combat early without making those specials apply incorrectly, and also prevents the add-on from checking whether an incoming attack applied one of those statuses to the defender.
