What you were expecting to happen, and what actually happened?
Steam on Win Vista, in PvP:
I cast Alchemy making some yellow matches, at least one of them with 4 gems. The game stopped for a moment, as if there was a lag or glitch, then without clearing any matched gems switched to the opponent’s turn. He made a move (swapped gems), and only then the board was cleared, including matches made by my Alchemy - granting both mana and extra turn to the opp.
In fact I think that wasn’t the first time. I use transforming spells extensively and there was already a couple of times I was positive the spell guaranteed a 4+ match, but I didn’t get the extra turn. It was the first time I’m absolutely sure it wasn’t my mistake as I saw those 4 yellow gems in a row for a couple of seconds and the opponent obviously moved while they were on the board.
What are the steps to make it happen again?
I don’t really know. My only clue is that it may be somehow connected to the memory leak or the lags that occur when it happens. When I play GoW for some time (1-2 hours without closing the application) it starts using huge amount of memory (like 1.5GB compared to 100-200 MB normally) and at the same time starts lagging (randomly stops responding for a couple of seconds). This glitch before switching turns looked like one of those lags.

Sorry, but no. It took me by surprise
