Er, I had a set of walls not go down. I wasn't recording either.
I'll try again with a recording sometime....
Edit: by "not go down", I mean they stayed up between rounds and then I proceeded to drive through them the next round.

I think this is caused by a hacky way to keep the cycles in the list of objects to be rendered after death, required by the new arrangement that the cycle triggers rendering of its walls (to avoid texture switches).

A shot-in-the-dark fix has been committed, the after death rendering is taken over by a dummy proxy object.

This is still incomplete. I pulled the 0.2.8 branch and rebuilt and ran, recording and all, for about half an hour and it never showed itself.

Well, then maybe the blind fix attempt killed it. We should just let it time out.

I've been seeing this problem lately from latest bzr. No recording yet...

The walls also stay around if a player leaves the server. Usually the go away when starting a new round.

I must have been playing in an older version from before the blind fix attempt was committed. I haven't seen this problem again yet. Strange.

I saw this problem in 0.2.8.2.1, but not in these alphas. Sometimes it affects me though. Very strange.
