[bf1942] Unlisted client bug?

Some of the code isn't exactly top quality, but given the size of
the project and the timeframe it was developed in I'd think twice
before flaming the programming team here at Dice. :-)

IIRC the we fixed the LF-bug in text fields for the next patch.

I had an interesting one... I tried to paste an IP into the "add
server" box (Which never actually works for adding servers, BTW)
and some newline characters or something got in there, and from
then on, it wouldn't let me even touch the box. I had to drop
into the configs and find where it saved the last entry and
delete it.

Great game, bad programming. :-)
