It sounds like a player left and the host started the game at roughly the same time. If the two messages crossed each other in transit, then another player might see the first player leave before the game starts (while the host does not). (End of speculation done without carefully understanding the protocol.)

It's impossible to prevent another player from leaving since they can always quit the game even if the leave option is disabled, even during loading. This may make more sense as a feature request for a more complicated start protocol to reduce the occurrences of players leaving after the host choose to start the game but before the game is loaded.

If a player leaves there should be a server message about that and the host get prompted to choose a replacement.

There is no functionality to go back to the game setup screen once the game was started.

A replay or any hint what game this happened in on the official mp server would be helpful in further investigation.

A player left the game just as the host started the game. Rather than preventing the game from starting until a new player joined, the game started and immediately gave this message:

"Side 3 has no controller but should! The host needs to assign control for the game to proceed past that side's turn."
