Freeciv fails to start/ connect to server
Last modified: 2008-09-18 17:18:18 EDT
Description of problem:
When attempting to load a game, start a new game or start a cenario, civclient
At the bottom of the screen some of the time you'll see "starting server" some
of the time, just before crashing, but not all the time.
Additionally starting the server seporately, and then trying to connect to it,
results in the client crashing.
Server registers the connection, and then says the client has disconnected.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Name : freeciv Relocations: (not relocatable)
Version : 2.1.5 Vendor: Fedora Project
Release : 1.fc9 Build Date: Fri 20 Jun 2008 01:43:54
Every so often it works.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Civclient
2. Attempt to start a cenario/ load a game/ connect to server.
Client shouldn't crash.
I've tried this on two different systems, with the same results.
