We experienced some strange behaviors on linux 1.45 server.

1.All clients crushed at the same time.

- It occured at 60/60 players
 CPU LoadAverage is 85~99% (AverageFPS is 40~55)
- All(mostly?) clients clushed
- Server didn't crush
- Map : Mimoyecques, Eagle'sNest, KbelyAirfield
- 3times within a hour

 But one player reports a sudden client crush occured at
30/60 players too. I'm not sure about the frequency.

2.Player who disconnect at MapLoadingScreen using ESC-key
 cannot connect until map changed.

 After the upper case (sudden client crush), clients could not
 connect the server by "CD-key already used"warning. Some players
 reports that they could connet the server withina couple of minutes,
 but mostly could not connet until map changed.

My server is 
 AthlonXP 2600+
 1024MB DDR
 A7N8X(nForce2) MainBoard
 Redhat 2.4.20-20.9
