Okay, assuming that I just researched one wanted tech sanitation after getting another currently researched explosives from Darwin's Voyage. But the third tech electricity wasn't authorized by me, and I prefer a manual "scientists do not know what to research next" step in this situation before getting unwanted random techs.

It's in line with my rules, the very first research must be masonry, all other former init techs have this as root requirement (mostly for the AIs, they really must build a palace, and need masonry for the job): savepalace, FALSE, TRUE is the only locked option under these rules.

It's not. You get Explosives from Darwin's. At this point, bulbs are carried over to the next research item, sanitation. Because it's cheap, the bulbs you already have make it complete. Then Darwin's gives you the next tech, in this case, since your tech goal is already fulfilled, is electricity.

Nothing you can do about, since avoiding electricy, you ran out of tech goals to be set.

That should be no different from any other means of getting what you have been researching. If you have research goal suitable set, research should be set towards it, otherwise random, and you can still change research yourself without penalty as long as you do that at the same turn as you finished previous research.

Epic fail obsoleting my own Great Library before its "best before" date with an unscheduled electric shock (screenshot attached).

Apart from stupid-stupid-stupid it could also qualify as a bug: I already got two free techs, why is a part of the remaining bulbs automatically spent for a third something (the most expensive available thing) I didn't want at this time?
