Unread post Time Change bug.
I'm not so sure if this is a bug, so much as it is a design flaw. Trade Wars is moving players out of the game, so that proper adjustments to their turns, and possibly other settings is calculated when they re-enter. This also happens when Daylight Savings time begins or ends.

If the system clock time changes, either manually or automatically, Trade Wars will dump all Players to the Game Menu (also known as the 'T' menu). This menu does not time out and the player will not re-log. Since players do not re-log players at the keys have an obvious advantage.
