I fired up the server on my linux box (where I did the initial development) 
and had no problems. Sometimes there is a slight delay where all teams are 
greyed out while a bot leaves the game, but I've never seen it be more then 
maybe 10 seconds. Perhaps it's a client issue where the client isn't 
updating when the team becomes available? On the client that is connected, 
does a bot leave? I use an old paradise client to do all my testing of pre-t 
if that makes a difference.
