Issue description
It looks like an integer overflow to my (non-programmer) eye...

Sometimes after a unit aborts an RF, you will see "Snap Shot (248 TUs)" or something similar in a subsequent attempt in the same turn. I've only seen it with snipers I think. The number has always been below 256.

Steps to reproduce this issue
1) Start skirmish on a map where you can see enemies to begin with - Wilderness works fine. Outfit all your guys with sniper rifles.

2) Put everyone on RF mode.

3) End turn.

I'm not sure you'll see it *every* time, but you've got a good chance.
