I think this is not a bug: probably that tile completed also upper cloister with road, and Dan received 9 points exactly for that cloister, not Steve's. According to the rules, there is no need to own a completed feature to receive points for the castle.

Ah! That could be a very good explanation. I'd need the other players to confirm that the tile ALSO completed the monastery with road... Because what we see here is the end game situation, so not 100% accurate. But I think you got it.

The only thing I can remember is that TheSteveAllen placed the fffr cloister that is within the range of my castle, but he claimed the road so the cloister was left unoccupied. This said, I'm pretty sure that you needed either the ffrr tile with the (2) on it or the ffff cloister next to it to join your double farmer on to my farm (which ended up being your farm) - and the corner road got placed first. Everything else must have already been in place because you used the flier to get into my city and then joined my double-farmer on with a subsequent frfr (straight road) where you placed your own double.

So I think MrNumbers is right and that there was no bug. We just didn't spot it because the completed cloister hadn't been claimed...

Tonight I'm home and would probably be available for a game. Although I'm scheduling my Base Game League games with Adrornalin (in possibly aprox. 40 min.) and BC&B League game with SteveAllen (probably after that), there might be some time for a fourth game some time this evening. Anything planned?

Well, how it started?  I was sitting in the BCB-castles-league-waitingroom but my challengers were occupied and so I kinda got involved in a 4-player-weekly-game which -spoiler alert- I managed to win in the end.  Jungleboy and Hounk dragged me into the game -although they didn't had to convince me a lot- and Pawel W. joined in on the last moment as well.
We played the base game, traders & builders and the River II.  After placing the river and starting a 3-way-coalition on the road along the river, no meeples were trapped in the beginning.  Then I took the risk of building a large city in the center with my builder in it.  Some efforts to trap that builder were made but by some handy (or should I say "lucky?) tiles, I managed to close it which gave me a first point advantage and the lead in some trade goods.  Meanwhile, Jungleboy and Hounk started claiming the two main farm fields N & S of the river.  By laying one tile, Hounk claimed the farms south of the river and trapped a meeple of both Jungleboy and Pawel W. & trapped also the builder of Pawel W.  With a straight road, I managed to trap one meeple of Hounk in a cloister and avoiding him from joining another farmer to the southern field.
Meanwhile, enters my big city number two in the NE.  Hounk saw the opportunity in it and joined.  I tried to take over again but after a while I thought it was better to share it and thus close it.  It was a coin-flip between me and Hounk who would close that mega-city and with that claim the majority in both wheat and wine trade goods.  It was me in the end who closed it and by doing that I got a lead in all 3 of the trade goods. 
Through all that city-building, I was limping behind in the large farmer fields but the tile-fairy was good to me in a way I could tie with Hounk in the southern field.  By plane stupidity (I haven't got an other word for it), I thought I shared the northern field with Jungleboy and placed my pig in that field with the last tile of the game...let's say I've had better ideas in my life.  Luckily it wouldn't make a difference in the end.

That's all, folks! Or almost all: thanks to Hounk, Jungleboy and Pawel W. for the game with a nice tempo.  And what concerns that BCB-league game, Mr.Numbers and Leven...that'll be for another day.

Cheers!
