check_victory can't be called from anywhere. (The engine is not exception-safe.) It can only be called from some very specific places where we are sure there is no pending actions. WML is definitely not such a place.

Currently, check_victory is called at the end of every attack and every turn side. To fix the original bug, check_victory should also be called after every unit move (since the issue is caused by killing a unit in a moveto event).

One also has to make sure that the same behavior happens whether the unit is moved by the user, the AI, the network, or the replay. Putting the call in the src/actions.cpp:move_unit function might be a good place, but one should check all its caller to verify that they are safe to be interrupted by an exception.

This patch does indeed work. (Tested with the Two_Brothers campaign)

I tested this patch by modifying the first scenario of the Two_Brothers campaign to kill Arne on turn 6 and use fire_event=yes. It does the trick!
