Tue Aug 16 21:33:35 2016, original submission:

The new path drawing (patch #5233) doesn't seem to behave quite the way I'd expect for air units.

In the attached savegame, [l tgt="unit" id=5272 name="Bomber" /] has 8 moves left this turn (24 total). I've set it a goto path of 9 tiles. I'd expect to see a filled-hexagon "path.step" labelled "1" at the 8th tile (to indicate that the bomber has reached the limit of its movement), but I don't.

Oddly there's a "path.step" labelled "1" on the origin tile, which there isn't for land units. This is labelled "1" even if I choose a shorter path which will finish this turn.

(I wondered if bug #24820 might influence this. But the behaviour I'm seeing after that, which I'm reporting here, seems the same as the behaviour I'm remembering from before, although I haven't checked every detail of the old behaviour.)
