I'd really rather not upload this without review from someone who's hacked on
Quake 3 previously, since it's effectively an NMU, I haven't worked on the
package before and it makes significant code changes.

Could someone have a look at this before we get to the freeze and it's too

I won't be able to work on this for the next week or so, but I'll hopefully
be able to re-test after that.

The code: http://git.debian.org/?p=users/smcv/openarena.git
The actual RC bug fix:

Has anyone from the games team been in touch with OA upstream previously? I can
start drafting a mail, but I feel as though an unknown person turning up on
their mailing lists/forums/whatever and complaining that they're making life
hard for distros is probably not the most diplomatic approach, so if someone
they already know could make the introductions I'd appreciate it :-)
