FYI, we found the "solution" to this problem. It's quite weird. It 
happens only when using the static version of the bf1942 engine, and 
apparently, it only happens on AMD64 machines. The annoying thing is, 
the dynamic version crashes for us 4-5 times a day, and takes an age to 
switch maps, while the static version is rock solid reliable and 
switches maps fast. For now, we've decided to run with the static 
version and live with the broken F16, for the much greater server stability.

If anyone has any insights as to why it happens with one version of the 
engine, but not the other, I'd be interested to hear them :)
