It happens with 2.7beta too. I figured out a culprit: The option settings. Dont think they are stored in save file. So save file would not help you? 'Quick Combat(Defense)' must be on OFF else it will not happen. I also have 'Show enemy moves' on ON, zoom to combat on OFF, stack attack on OFF - dont know if these matter. If you still cannot reproduce it please post again. I will try to provide a save file and all my option settings (screenshots?) then. I used 3 galleons & 15 flurries & 2 barb triremes now.
