Several vulnerabilities of Armagetron have been made
public recently: There are two ways to crash a server
( and possibly execute arbitrary code ) by sending fake
packages, one way to kick other connected players,
one way to stop a server or client from receiving further
network messages, and one fake connection flood
problem.

This patch fixes all of these problems up to the last.
That's more difficult and has only be fixed in
Armagetron Advanced CVS currently.

As the file name indicates, the patch is for Armagetron
Advanced 0.2.7.0, but it works as well for Armagetron
0.2.6.0.
