a player downloading from the server can sometimes show up as playing on the scoreboard. this takes up a spot in the server as well and can prevent people from playing in 1v1 servers here is a demo showing it in a CTF game. take a look at when Bless[NS] starts downloading from server https://www.dropbox.com/s/5glqhz3380jmgz0/Odamex_CTF_20140525_012713_%5Bfw%5Dnub_hat_idl2013.wad_MAP24.odd

Normally when a downloading client connects, the server sends a message to all other clients to inform them that a new client joined and should be considered a spectator. A code change in 0.7.0 added a test to avoid telling the downloader that he is a spectator. However the test had a typo and always evaluated to "true", meaning that no clients were told to treat the downloader as a spectator and thus everyone treated the downloader as a non-spectating player. r4989 fixes this. Please test and confirm.
