[bf1942] dropping players during map changes

I am not sure it is a 'crash' because usually it keeps a good number of
players in it. But it is damn annoying and I am glad its not just me.

Perhaps the memory leak still exists, I am going to start rebooting my box
every other day at least

Seeing the same here but might not be at map change. The server
seems to spike sometimes drop most or all players and possibly
restart but with an zero exit code so it doesn't look like a typical
crash. I've been trying to track it down but its very hard to catch.
