Have these map images been recently updated? It looks like those mountains might have been revised. It's possible that the old version had the Mauritania/Algeria border blocked off, and that the new map changed that (intentionally or not) without changing the XML.

In game 41033, I could not attack from Guinea to Benin, even though they clearly border each other. (Also the troops number seems off-centre on Benin.)

Also, I see no Burkina Faso....

Guinea and Benin do not border each other. Burkina Faso is in between Guinea and Benin.

The large & small versions of this map have the countries with different names for some reason, which would appear to be the cause of the confusion.
Taking an enemy on the battlefield is like a hawk taking a bird. Though it enters into the midst of a thousand of them, it pays no attention to any bird other than the one it has first marked.

Another difference between the large and the small map. Central Republic appears to border West Zaire on the small map, but you cannot attack. This map needs to be sorted out.
