I reckon I have found the fix as to why shooting the tank commander in the
boss2 easter egg with railgun causes quake2 game to lock-up. In fact it
doesn't, it just gets stuck in that while (ignore) loop here ever after.
The code is indeed /game/g_weapon.c -> fire_rail ()
Full explanation and code here:
I confirm this fixes the problem, and the logic seems right - but I am unaware
(and can't see how to test) what happens in all the variations during the
rest of the game.
