    Banned player crashes server?

    I've noticed this several times over the past few weeks.
    I banned a player from my Linux UT3 server about a month ago for running cheats.
    (Can't kill him easily, his aim is beyond reasonable, he can always find the flag carrier...)
    Now I log in and find my server shut down with the following message:
    NetComeGo: Open TheWorld 123.456.789.115:50200 (I changed the IP)
    Log: Client netspeed is 10000
    Log: UTPlayerController_13 got player TcpipConnection_12
    ScriptLog: XXXX is banned, kicking... (I deleted the player name)
    Log: appRequestExit(0)
    Exit: Preparing to exit.
    Exit: Game engine shut down
    Exit: closesocket error (5)
    Exit: UTcpNetDriver shut down
    Exit: Object subsystem successfully closed.
    Log: Shutting down FaceFX...
    Log: FaceFX shutdown.
    Exit: Exiting.
    Exit: Name subsystem shutting down
    Uninitialized: Log file closed,


    Anybody seen this or know of an exploit that can force a server crash like the old UT99 server exploit?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Whats wrong with posting the player name? Yes i have experienced this with my own servers too, never thought to ask, just normally shut em down, or whatever.

      hmm, i think its coded in a cheat.
      its not hard to do this by uscript

      has the letter called "|" "<" ">" "~" on the beginning of his name ?

        If so, I certainly don't see any in the log.
        All I see is this:
        Log: UTPlayerController_13 got player TcpipConnection_12
        ScriptLog: Snoz is banned, kicking...
        Log: appRequestExit(0)
        Exit: Preparing to exit.
        Exit: Game engine shut down
        Exit: closesocket error (5)
        Exit: UTcpNetDriver shut down
        Exit: Object subsystem successfully closed.
        Log: Shutting down FaceFX...
        Log: FaceFX shutdown.
        Exit: Exiting.
        Exit: Name subsystem shutting down


        If he's using any unusual characters in his player name my experiences have been that they show up in the server log (at least in Linux).
        I've been running UT servers since UT99, and all the non alpha-numeric characters do display in the logs.
