Ok, this is the second game explosion, after the Hansa accident last week, with exactly the same result: game position in the DB is totally blanked, so the game is lost. Obviously this can no longer be ascribed to a server fluke or something like that: there is a serious problem somewhere in the code. Unpredictable and unreproduceable bugs are difficult to track down, so I'm afraid it will take some time.
In the meantime, as a workaround I have added some sanity checks in the save routine in order to prevent that a faulty position is saved into the DB, causing the irreparable loss of the game. Should this problem arise again, you should get an error message inviting you to reload the game from the DB and repeat your turn actions (of course I couldn't test it, let's hope that it works).
I thank you all again for your help and the time you are dedicating to the testing, I appreciate it very much. And thanks for your patience with these problems.
Ok, I have identified the source of the problem (I have been able to reproduce the same game explosions at will on my developing site at home), and I think I have fixed it.
There shouldn't be anymore not only games losses but also the occasional blanked out game-boards, so if you still spot something like this please let me know asap.
(I mean, no more explosions due to this problem, maybe there are other bugs out there! :roll:
