Is the Quake 2 security issue solved? In network mode the client fetches

at all or ship it without network support.

Maybe the issue is solved, I haven't had a look at Quake2 for years ;)

Just wondering, how do Q2 for Win32 and Q2 for GNU/Linux interoperate, then? 

I also think that a warning about potential security breaches would perhaps be better than excluding the game.
