Viewer does not delete cells properly in Larger than Life.

When a spaceship that moves faster than light reaches the boundary, it is deleted; however, the area where the ship was does not get updated, so there is a false image of the ship. See the below RLE for an example:

This has been fixed and will be in the next released build. Test case is here.

This bug appears to have returned somewhat in build 286.

It's working. Bear in mind that you are testing against development builds which are sometimes "work in progress" as changes happen.

Can confirm that it seems to have been fixed again.
