(edit: game save has been uploaded: "QA influence 1")

Summary: while in a faction and after conquering a settlement, if you go in the "Donate prisoners" or "Donate troops to garrison" screens (with or without actually donating anything), then acquire the settlement, you will then gain influence when managing prisoners or garrison with this settlement, despite the settlement being yours. This allows an unlimited influence exploit.

How to Reproduce:
(from uploaded save "QA influence 1" in which I linked this thread)

Context:
- the player is in a faction
- the player just conquered a castle
- the vote for new owner of this castle is pending

Steps:
1- Go in "Donate troops to garrison" or "Go to the dungeon => Donate prisoners"
2- Cancel or donate some troops / prisoners (both will trigger the issue)
3- Resolve the "Vote for the new owner of Sahel Castle"
4- Get ownership of the castle (should work with "We abstain")
5- Go in "Manage garrison" or "Go to the dungeon => Manage prisoners"
6- Give enough troops / prisoners to get an influence gain
7- Notice that you gain influence even if it is your own settlement
8- You can then retrieve you troops / prisoners and go back in the related menu to do this again (unlimited influence)

Notes:
- If you do not go in "Donate troops to garrison" or "Go to the dungeon => Donate prisoners" before resolving the vote, you will not have the issue afterwards
- After triggering the issue, leaving / going back to the castle does not solve it
- After triggering the issue, saving and loading the game solves it

Have you used cheats and if so which: yes
- campaign.add_renown_to_clan (to be able to join a faction)
- campaign.add_skill_xp_to_hero (Steward)
- campaign.fill_party (multiple times)
- cheat mode (getting food + teleporting)

Scene Name (if related): world map
