Descriptive Problem Summary:
While hosting, I opened up my minimized Dream Daemon and found something peculiar about it.

As you can see, the player count is extremely high and not accurate at all. This number continued to increase by 1 at a very rapid pace.

After turning off new connections, the number halted.

After turning them back on, the number began increasing again.

Off-screen, the number has dropped back down to a lower but still inaccurate (according to the BYOND website) 40 players. And then it dropped back down to an accurate number.

Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:
1. Host
2. ... I don't know.
3. See above

Code Snippet (if applicable) to Reproduce Problem:

Expected Results:
Accurate player counts?

Actual Results:
Dream-like player counts.

Does the problem occur:
Every time? Or how often? Randomly
In other games? Hasn't yet
In other user accounts? Don't know
On other computers? Don't know

When does the problem NOT occur?
Most of the time.

Did the problem NOT occur in any earlier versions? If so, what was the last version that worked? (Visit to download old versions for testing.)
I haven't seen the problem before now.

Wait for it to fix itself.
Somebody spamming you with Topic(s)? Are there IPs listed as players?
No, nothing unusual like that.
We've had this issue with abuse of world.Export() in older versions of the server, but that should have been patched for 479.

If this happens again, let us know and we can connect to a live server to see what's up.
