I'm not sure what you mean?
When you first set a mage to monthly cast a site search spell you can look at his order and see the target. Next month, assuming you had gems left and more provinces to search he has a new target, which you can also check.

That target is picked sometime during the turn generation process. The simplest assumption is that it is picked immediately after the previous month's spell is cast. This seems to fit all the evidence and leads to the weird behavior described.
While playing your turn, you can see that the mage has orders to cast his spell on a province you no longer own. That you could no longer set him to target. And if you don't change it he'll go ahead and cast it.

Ahhh my apologies. Im used to reading game logs. References to ritual phase automatically makes me think of during hosting.

You are quite right now that I think about it. Of course the selection of the next months target must happen during previous hosting phase. *slap self in head*

Im not sure Ive ever noticed it targeting a place I no longer own. I thought it was just bad timing in the same hosting. I will need to watch that closer and re-target if its an obvious miss.

I've been having a small problem with this function.

Step 1: Grab 2 units.
Step 2: Shift + M
Step 3: Select Arcane Probing (Astral Search)
Step 4: Select Province. Leave on default
Step 5: Select Arcane Probing for Unit 2
Step 6: Select province. A different one from the original.

The next turn, when I hit F1 to look where they're searching, they're trying to search the same province again.

Unpatched. When trying to patch to 3.26, it causes my game to crash.

There are a few different behaviors regarding monthly auto-casting and site searching that are changed in various patches (not to mention a metric ton of other fixes/changes/additions.)

You could try sending the crash information to Shrapnel support; perhaps they can help you out; getting up to date with the latest patch will be its own reward (even if your particular current game is hosed.)

You should open a support ticket with Shrapnel support.
