BUG: Crashes on subsequent Logins (Windows) [FIXED-1.0.2b]

Not new. Subsequent hosting or joining attempts after the first have usually resulted in crashes. I'm hoping to address this in v1.0.

It seems that the Failed Disconnect / Subsequent Logins bug is back or never was fixed, since I had to restart BRPG every time I tried hosting a new game or simply disconnecting.

I noticed it now crashes on the second attempt to join a game as well, not just hosting.

"internal" testing (I've reconfigured my modem and router so will test that out later) on this.

logged in, I did not grant floating license, logged out "player" then immediately tried to log back in. gives the "please wait" screen.
cancled, changed the player name, crash.

restarted player, got "please wait" again, crash on second attempt.
Logged off host, tried to log back in, crash.

restarted both... and was able to log the player in and out repeatedly.

Out of curiosity I tried using the same name on the player as on the GM client and it gives the Please Wait message.

Fixed for v1.0.2b. :D

This was happening because of a bug in the Flash Component text fields that were being used on the Login panel. I've swapped those Flash fields out for standard text fields and the problem is resolved.

It's possible that this change I just made may also help the two or three users who have been unable to host games. Slim chance, at least.

Some long-time BRPG testers may recall an old bug in an early beta that was causing BRPG to crash upon login, back when I was storing users connection preferences. I now think that the Flash component text fields on the login panel were the real culprit all along, so I'm going to try to re-enable the stored connection preferences, so that BRPG remembers your last used username, host IP address, port number, etc. This might be in the next release.
