MapTool 1.3.b89
Upon joining a remote server, players (including GMs) seem to start up in a random map among those they have visibility of. This is a mild annoyance when resuming a game in progress where several maps had been uncovered in the previous session.

It's true that you can always move to the right map (or the GM can force all players to view the right map), but it would be nice to have a feature where the person hosting the server (or maybe any GM?) could choose an available map to be the one displayed to players upon joining. If the person makes a mistake and the chosen map is not visible to that player, maintaining the current behaviour of appearing in a random map is fine (maybe you could get a warning when you choose a map that is not visible to players).
