Are there any other abuses like this?

@Martin and Eric: that glitch is a bug that was fixed in the October 2010 patch. – Oak Oct 27 '10 at 15:03
Trade agreements are broken upon war, so you can request all the gold in an empire's treasury, in return for GPT and goods. Declare war, and your GPT and goods will be returned, but you keep the gold. Also, I've seen an instance where a city-state started gaining 10-15 influence a turn to no end, but I haven't been able to replicate that feat. – Joshua Shane Liberman Jan 29 '13 at 17:13
