Just tried launching UT2003 from XQF and it connected straight away.

Debian Sid
xqf 0.9.13 (xqf_0.9.13-1_i386.deb)
UT2003 v2225

In fact the only problem I had was the one where it will sometimes come up 
windowed instead of full screen.  A restart usually fixes this, but it's more 
of a problem when you're being directly connected to a game.
