Cubes from an area being evaluated go back to the general stock once the area is evaluated. It appears you are placing cubes in the general stock after all areas are evaluated (at least the displayed general stock numbers don't change until then.)
The relevant part of the rule is:
Finally, discard excess cards in the area (put them back into the box). All the cubes that were played in the area are put back into the general stock. Move on to the next area.
Most of the time this doesn't matter since players usually have cubes in the general stock. However, if you don't have cubes in the general stock, then you can't reserve a room at the museum. One way to plan for this is to make sure you have at least one cube in an area that proceeds the area from which you plan to reserve a room in the museum.

Good point, I hadn't thought abouth this, thanks for pointing it out.
I will certainly need to fix it but unfortunately this is not a one-line fix, it will require some significant changes and with all the games now running I will have to be very careful not to break anything. Also, it will not be possible to deploy the new code on current games because those in the middle of the survey phase would be messed up (areas already scored would not return the cubes).
In conclusion: it will take a bit of time, and once ready the fix will affect only the newly created games.
I have finally updated the game. Now cubes are returned to the general stock after each area is surveyed and not at the end of the survey phase.
The change will have effect only on newly created games (with ID > 18082).
