Play the new patch for 10 turns already. They DON'T escort settlers. At least poor Gandi didn't do it in my game. Moreover, I still can pillage a road outside of my borders. But I can't destroy traders for some reason. Do I need some tech for that or is it a new bug? It's even more strange. Next turn I was able to plunder the trader although my warrior had full movement previous turn and only half movements this turn. I can't understand it.
