Fixes #9566
Closes #9567

Motivation / Problem

As reported in #9566, sometimes the only valid path to the next ship destination is behind it.
It's also possible for ships to be stuck like in image because they just go back on the same track when hitting a dead end.


The first commit tests paths using forward and reverse direction when leaving a dock, and reverse the ship if it's the best solution.
The second commit tries all possible reverse directions when a dead end is hit.
