Probably the same situation applies to "Warning: the guest name '%s' has been taken, renaming to user '%s'."

When a server has authentication enabled and guest logins enabled (--Guests), in the event of a database error for a non-guest username, it falls back to connecting the user as a guest.

However, the server sends a chat message before the connection is established to explain to the client what's happened. The client doesn't like this; it says

and disconnects in disgust, rather defeating the point of the exercise.

Either the server shouldn't send the chat message, or the client should be more relaxed about receiving early chat messages (client_packet_input()), or possibly both.
