I've just rerun a different encounter with the same result, and in detail:
It's "Bass" (created figure, 2-hand spear + bow) vs Quick Rat and Clumsy Rat
turn 1
10 yards apart
Bass holds; rats close to 6 yards
turn 2
Bass moves 1 yard backwards
rats close to 3 yards
turn 3
rats engage
Bass holds
quick rat hits and does 1 pt damage
Bass attacks at "-2 DX due to previous injury" -- (is this a bug? Only 1 damage was done?)
Bass hits, 1d+1 for 3 total damage (no extra die), Quick Rat is dead
However, no +2 DX set against charge, pole weapon went second, and no extra damage
turn 4
Bass disengages
turn 5
Bass moves 10 hexes backward
Clumsy Rat closes to 8 yards
turn 6
Clumsy Rat close to 4 yards
Bass takes 3 steps forward and attacks. Now gets option of "Pole Weapon First Attack". In this case everything looks right: attack first and with extra damage

So the problem might be about pole weapon figure receiving a charge attack rather than initiating.
