Default Unlimited game length?

A couple of times I've been playing a generated battle, set for 25 turns, and at the end of turn 25, it begins turn 26, then 27, 28 etc. The 'game length' changes to 26, 27, 28 with each successive turn as well.

Is this a feature of generated battles? Is there any way to force the end of the game, apart from resigning, such that I can see the final score, kills etc?

Scenarios end on the turn scheduled but generated battles and campaigns can have a one or two turn overrun. Thats a design decision that is years old. It's there to prevent people from waiting until the last turn to take V hexes. We originally included it with scenarios but the sceanrio designers complained it caused problems when they wanted a scenario to last say.... 10 turns and only ten turns then it kept running for a couple of more turns and altered the intent of the sceanrio
