Issue description
Item 450 imported from sourceforge.net tracker on 2013-01-28 18:21:29

I have played UFO:AI since 2.0 rc3 or something like that and really enjoy the game. Thank you all for the effort!

Just downloaded rc6 (win32.exe) to try. After the third mission ended there was a message in the world view that one of the soldiers that was killed during the mission had been promoted to sergeant. I checked that there were no soldiers (or other employees) by that name. None of the surviving soldiers had been promoted.

Haven't seen this topic anywhere in the bugreport so I hope it's not a re-post.

Keep up the good work! /Nils

Thanks for the bug report. Should now be fixed in trunk revision 5084.

Note: Soldiers are allowed to be promoted after death, but now the message will indicate this: _Soldier X_ has been awarded the posthumous rank of _Rank Y_ for inspirational gallantry in the face of overwhelming odds.
