Defeating an enemy npc in a duel and still ending

The subject is sort of oddly worded, but I was having trouble thinking of how to describe this. I was in Marleybone fighting two of the rat type npcs. I forget which one specifically. Anyway, I defeated one of them. I still had plenty of health left.

The very next round, the game hesitated for quite a while. I continued fighting the second opponent. It was almost as if the previously defeated npc was still in the game, but he was invisible. I couldn't see any spell effects from that defeated npc.

Next thing I know, I'm back in Regent Square soundly defeated. Never once did my health show zero on my screen. I am guessing this is a bug.

Anyone else have this happen?

The 'Dying without Trying' post may be your answer.

If you ran out of cards, you are automatically defeated, regardless of your health status.

I don't about their issue, but I have been steamed many times when the Battle won't end even when the other side is beaten. In one sorely-remembered moment in Krokotopia, of example, I had beaten a pair of Sentries (those crocodile-guards in Royal Hall), but the battle would not end! After (and I counted them) a full twelve times of being forced to pick Spells and pay Mana, despite me being the only one in the Battle Circle, I got fed up, and hit the Flee button.

This hideous glitch doesn't happen all the time or even in the same place; but when it does, you might as well Flee, since the game - in a seeming desire to outright cheat against you - will never allow the Battle to end until you die, Flee, or otherwise get kicked out of the Battle.

I want swear to it, but I'm about 99.9% sure I did not run out of cards. I have about 40 in my spell book. I was still casting spells when all of a sudden I was booted back to Regent Square in a defeated state.
