SIMON2: Castle guards and gate are bugged

When Simon talks to the castle guards and refuses to pay the bribe (either you don't have the money yet or choose not to pay) he normally walks off the screen and back to the city. During the few seconds it takes for Simon to exit the screen the mouse pointer becomes active again. If you at this time click on the gate Simon will walk right through the guards' axes and presents his Royal Wizard ID card, regardless of whether he has actually got it yet or not. Also if you click on the ground instead of the gate you can stay in the area and try to talk to the guards. If I remember correctly, this was possible to do in the original version also (staying in the screen that is, not walking past the guards), however talking to them should've triggered the usual 'have you got our money yet?' dialogue. Instead in ScummVM this will produce the line "I think I'll leave them to it, in case they remember some more expenses." which would in the original come up only after you'd paid them. This can be easily reproduced by simply starting a new game and going straight to the castle from the start.
