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

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.
