Descriptive Problem Summary:
When a client connects to a Dream Daemon (Reproduced with 493.1116 on Ubuntu, also occurs on a similarly versioned DreamDaemon running on Mikau's Windows server) hosted world with a large resource file, closing out of the splash screen calls client/Del() without calling client/New().
Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:
1.) Connect to a world hosted by Dream Daemon with a large resource file
2.) Close out of the resource loading splash screen before the resources are loaded.
3.) Observe output messages from client/Del() being called, but not client/New()
Code Snippet (if applicable) to Reproduce Problem:
I have packaged a test DMB and test resources at the following links: http://files.audeuro.com/test.zip and http://files.audeuro.com/test_rsc.zip, the resources for this are as follows: images from my server, some DLLs I had on my server, the entire contents of my website (no sensitive information) including redundant copies of the above, but tar'd up. This is an extreme case, but it allows for enough time to exit out of the loading screen and observe that the client/Del() message is present in the world log file when the corresponding client/New() is not.
client/Del() to either A.) Not be called or B.) At least be called after client/New(), preferably the former.
client/Del() is called with client/New() no where in sight.
Does the problem occur:
Every time? Or how often? When you exit out of the resource loading splash screen.
In other games? Frequently for some users in The Saloon
In other user accounts? Yes.
On other computers? Yes.
