Hmm... strange. In this case the PB logs shows that the player
disconnected at exactly 15:37:28. There are no entries of him
reconnecting after that time, yet our admins saw him and tried to kick
him with no effect.

I now saw in the PB-logs that at the time he was disconnected, i.e.
15:37:28, there was a massive disconnect from PB, and the BF2 debug log
indicates there was a mapchange at that exact time. But when players
start the next round, there is a new connection event, and there was no
such event for this player.
