I have spotted something very weird in pathfinding
algorithm. If you explored a part of galaxy and then
you go back to the explored system and send it to the
unexplored planet that have only one visible starlane
to it (however there can be other, but you haven't
explored that part from the other side of this system)
the path is shown properly, but the scout doesn't
follow it. To illustrate what I mean I will try to show
it by rough ascii art.
S / \ / \ / B
C S S
|\ ---S----S | S---D S
/ \ |
/ S---S S
Let's suppose the scout is ordered to go from A to B.
It's path is A-C-B. However when it moves to C it
doesn't follow it's path! It's going towards D. The
lines drawn are visible starlanes, S means system.
