Observed on pickled server last night during pre-T entertainment.  Did not try it during t-mode.  While peaced and carrying, fly to enemy planet, orbit with shields up, and beam down.  Shields drop but armies don't, which is expected.  Declare war.  Armies start dropping immediately before war declaration 10 second timer runs out.  I believe this is a bug.  Note that beam down key was only pressed before declaring war. Client XP 2009 although I doubt that matters.  Bug is repeatable.

Tried same technique with bombing.  Shields stayed up.  Bombing never started even after war declaration timer ran out, which is expected.
