Well defended colony falls without a fight

    My Dutch forces were besieging Roanoke, defended by 9 soldiers. I was softening up their defences with Cannon, supported by blockading ships, when an English Caravel approached. I attacked it with my Privateer - and Roanoke immediately fell!

    The two consecutive messages on my Event Log read:
    'After being defeated by your Privateer, a Caravel has escaped' and 'You have captured Roanoke'.

    The only Combat Log report was of the naval battle.

    I did indeed have possession of Roanoke although all my units were still outside the colony, with full mp. The Caravel turned up, badly damaged, in a nearby Indian Village while all 9 defending soldiers were now sitting on an adjoining forested hill.

    I have saves available but unfortunately cannot repeat the bug - the Caravel is destroyed on replay.

    Does anyone have a suggestion as to why the colony fell, and has anyone come across this before?
