It seemed time to do another of these, with Ayin, forcemstr, yann and
silene fixing many bugs in the last few weeks.  Down to 86 right now,
with at least two more that should be trivial to close.

I've categorized them differently to the usual item groups, to shake
things up (the original item group is abbreviated between [ and ]).
Additional comments are given on some of these, and new comments have also
been entered at the actual reports for many of the bugs.  This breakdown
should give everyone a quick way to locate a few bugs that their own
expertise can be applied to.  Can we go below 80, or even 70?

First, reviving an old one:

Silene closed this bug, but SotBE and EI still seem to use multihex attack
units.  In the global data/units directory, we have Watch_Tower.cfg (with
"hexes=5"), Pirate_Galleon.cfg (with "hexes=2"), Transport_Galleon.cfg
(hexes=5) and Watch_Tower.cfg (hexes=4).  This probably qualifies as a
bug in SotBE, and in also in EI (Wall Guard is used in Weldyn_Attack.cfg).
What to do?

Still lingering:

The workaround of changing to hotkey in Preferences is now mentioned in
the comments.  This still needs to be fixed.  I think hotkey descriptors
that rely on specific keyboard layouts are a problem, and would prefer
character descriptors (instead of "shift-;" rather use ":").  Then people
could use the same shortcut even on different keyboards.

This one is bordering on a feature request.  Any comments from Mac users?

This comment still holds.  I'm tempted to mark these as Need Info,
any objections?

If there are no objections I'd like to change these from Multiplayer to
something more sensible -- perhaps even None?

If no objection, I'll mark this as Need Info, it currently does not seem
reproducible with the sequence of instructions given.

The dreaded OOS

This category has shrunk since last time, and there have been no major
reproducible OOS errors recently: many OOS errors are still seen but
it's not clear what they are due to, and they seem unreproducible.

A checksum feature would be very nice to at least signal when different
configuration files are being used, although it is not clear exactly
what should be checksummed, eg. in the presence of user campaigns that
potentially override units.

Using extra gold logging (see patch #3740), I created a log of a game
where the AI started a scenario with 342 gold but the replay with only
300 -- no wonder it was causing an OOS.  This was attached to #10777.
Alas, haven't been able to reproduce #10777 for several weeks, and I
can't pinpoint what changes could have fixed this issue.  Will keep
monitoring with extra gold logging.

Many of the other replays seem to be due to OOS errors during the original
game, which perhaps weren't picked up at the time since those usually
just give a warning and go ahead with the calculated value, but the replay
will complain with an error.  See also the :ignore-replay-errors command.

Campaign issues

Turin -- please close this if this is now fixed.

Benj needs to fix this.  It's been reported at least three times.

> 10408 [Ca] Recruited characters have same name as main characters

Not sure this is still an issue, at least not in the mainline campaigns.
Unless the person reporting it was actually referring to the same error
as #11932?

Could someone confirm?  I thought download now triggered a cache refresh.

Still an issue?

Haven't ever seen this.  Can someone clarify or confirm?

I think these are in progress, Silene and Ayin were discussing this
on IRC.

This broke lots of things and was reverted.  The text domains need
revision, though this should probably wait until yann has finished the
current dependency cleanup.

> 11848 [--] translated user campaigns not translated under windows

Seems related to the user campaign translations ending up in a directory
that is not searched for translations, and may be an issue on Mac OS
X also.

A new one:

12305 Translations      German translation: Delfador tells english text after 
recruiting (tutorial)

2 new ones:

11971 [ed] Map Editor loads custom terrains from user campaigns - and the 
terrain selector chokes
12382 [ed] File selector looks a little odd

See comment with pointer to relevant forum posting by EP, with suggested
new values.

A new one:
