Press Ctrl-D at a server prompt and you get "Server cannot read standard input. Ignoring input." and can no longer enter anything.

This does not seem like a useful thing to do.

This has just wedged a Longturn game, which is now stuck waiting for a timed save before the situation can be rectified.

(This is distinct from bug #18254, which alleges the same thing can happen even without ^D.)
