Can reproduce before fix for bug #22449, cannot reproduce after.

I expect the fix for bug #22449 will have fixed this too, but I haven't tested it yet.

Maybe bug #22449 is another symptom of the same underlying bug?

(Following on from bug #22048:)

Xubuntu 12.04 amd64; start freeciv-gtk2; repeatedly "Connect to network game" then "Cancel" (using keyboard shortcuts for speed: hold down Alt then c[O]nnect, [C]ancel, [O], [C], ...).

Some fraction of the time I get console error messages like the following, and sometimes I see mangled characters in the client's status line.

Maybe some lack of thread safety in communicating metaserver/version information back to main thread?
